Big Day in Pittsburgh

Sure, the Penguins played yesterday, and the Steelers face the Chiefs today, but a bigger news item in our world isn't in any sports field. Today's the big day for LB and TQ in Pittsburgh. We've had a good time and head back tomorrow, but not before we have seen some of this beautiful area and seen our two friends say their vows to each other today. Here are a few photos illustrating what there is to see here, down near Ohiopyle, PA, including Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece.
There's also a photo of the tour crew at the top of the Monongehela Incline, looking over the Three Rivers area. We're having a good time, and I get to read at the ceremony this afternoon Robert Frost's poem "The Master Speed." Read it here and offer up your best wishes to two good people as they join their lives.
No speed of wind or water rushing by
But you have speed far greater. You can climb
Back up a stream of radiance to the sky,
And back through history up the stream of time.
And you were given this swiftness, not for haste
Nor chiefly that you may go where you will,
But in the rush of everything to waste,
That you may have the power of standing still--
Off any still or moving thing you say.
Two such as you with such a master speed
Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed
That life is only life forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar.
