No this isn’t the mystical little town of Brigadoon, the magical town filled with legend, love, tragedy and beautiful music. It.might be though. This is a town just north of the great cities of St. Paul & Minneapolis, but it is reminiscent of a quaint village from many centuries ago. The fact that I love this piece of art, the musical “Brigadoon,” and the artist who painted this beauty inspired the words.
Where do you find contentment when all around seems lost,
In city streets so dimly lit, at an expensive cost,
In valleys green where water pours through rivers pure and clean,
In rivers deep, that wind and creep and keep the valley green,
In the darkness of the soul within, is that where you find peace,
In a sanctuary built of stone, where your problems you release,
Do you see it in the people that you greet most every day,
Is it in the quiet laughter of a child alone at play,
Is it in the calm serenity of music, art or dance,
Or does it come from looking at your love’s sweet, smiling glance,
Don’t search in darkest corners, you’ll never find it there,
The light that shines from heaven, will take away your care.
