Robert E. Lee’s 208th Birthday

You can have anything you want - if you want it badly enough.
You can be anything you want to be, have anything you desire,
accomplish anything you set out to accomplish -
if you will hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.

- Robert Edward Lee
(19 Jan 1807 - 12 Oct 1870)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We try to celebrate this very special day dear to the heart of all Virginians each year.

Ashokan Farewell

http://www.jayandmolly.com/ashokanfaq.shtml

Words by Grian MacGregor
Music by Jay Ungar, 1982


The sun is sinking low in the sky above Ashokan.
The pines and the willows know soon we will part.
There's a whisper in the wind of promises unspoken,
And a love that will always remain in my heart.

My thoughts will return to the sound of your laughter,
The magic of moving as one,
And a time we'll remember long ever after
The moonlight and music and dancing are done.

Will we climb the hills once more?
Will we walk the woods together?
Will I feel you holding me close once again?
Will every song we've sung stay with us forever?
Will you dance in my dreams or my arms until then?

Under the moon the mountains lie sleeping
Over the lake the stars shine.
They wonder if you and I will be keeping
The magic and music, or leave them behind.
