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 with Lisa 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 and Susan Boyle, Barbara Bott and Bob Jennings, Dan Nydick, Jim and Fran Abraham, Pam Meadowcroft and Jim Holland, Josh and Marion Whetzel, Mark and Caryle Glosser, Matt and Kim Wagle, Michael and Amy Couch, Scott and Sue Lammie, Kate Dewey, Carolyn Doronio and Tori Haring-Smith.

Also seen: Randy and Hilary Gilmore, James and Sally Donnell, Terri Snavely, David and Barbara Watters, Larry and Martha John, Patrick and Desmarie Decuir, Greg and Alice Greenwood, Bruce and Lisa Coleman and Doug and Tracey Mullins.
