Fallingwater Twilight Tour always a treat
This writer has been privileged for some years to attend the annual Fallingwater Twilight Tour.
This writer also has been challenged each time to come up with a fresh angle on Frank Lloyd Wright's magical, mystical retreat astride Bear Run in Fayette County.
Books have been written, photos taken, documentaries filmed. What is left, except to wonder if there is a sight more enchanting than Fallingwater as it glows in the twilight, at one with the surrounding forest? If you haven't been there yet, you should go.
Guests at the 18th annual tour, held Aug. 24, explored at leisure the grounds and multilevel indoor spaces and terraces. Adding a dash of spice to the gourmet picnic that followed was jazz music featuring Brazilian singer Kenia.
On the scene were Fallingwater Director Lynda Waggoner with Tom; Western Pennsylvania Conservancy President Tom Saunders withLisa Auel; and Susie Shipley, president of sponsor Huntingdon Bank, with Neil.
From the VIP list: Susan Fitzsimmons, Steve and Kathi Guinn, Michael and Judy Cheteyan, Mike andSusan Boyle, Barbara Bott andBob Jennings, Dan Nydick, Jim and Fran Abraham, Pam Meadowcroft andJim Holland, Josh and Marion Whetzel, Mark andCaryle Glosser, Matt and Kim Wagle, Michael and Amy Couch, Scott and Sue Lammie, Kate Dewey, Carolyn Doronio and Tori Haring-Smith.
Also seen: Randy andHilary Gilmore, James andSally Donnell, Terri Snavely, David andBarbara Watters, Larry and Martha John, Patrick and Desmarie Decuir, Greg and Alice Greenwood, Bruce andLisa Coleman and Doug and Tracey Mullins.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
