Travel brings power and love back into your life. 

 Jalaluddin Rumi

Early Saturday morning, October 21, 2017, I decided to take a day trip to Turner Falls, Oklahoma. Driving, it is about an hour to two-hours from Richardson, Texas. My adventure started out with chilly overcast early fall weather in Texas and ended up with a delightfully warm sunny afternoon in Southern Oklahoma. Oh yes, my destination was Turner Falls, Oklahoma which is a straight shot up I-35 over the Red River to 77 and to the park.

I stopped off in Gainesville, Texas to take a picture of their historic court house which was built in 1910. With an octagonal rotunda topped by stained glass, the courthouse was designed in the Beaux Arts style with some Prairie Style features.


Crossing the Red River, you will find hundreds of  windmills for electricity. It is an amazing sight, at least it was for me.

Turner Falls is nested in the Arbuckle Mountains and is one of Oklahoma’s tallest waterfalls at about 77 feet high. Located on Honey Creek, a visitor that is planning a week-end adventure can rent amazing rustic cabins within the 1,500-acre park area. In addition to the crystal blue swimming holes, the park also contains nature trails, caves, and other interesting geological features. There is even a walk-up castle which was built in the 1930s.

The falls was discovered and settled by Mazeppa Thomas Turner, a Scottish immigrant farmer in 1878 who eventually married a Chickasaw woman and made this gorgeous part of Oklahoma his homestead. The falls was named for him.


The city of Davis currently operates this recreational area. It is very well kept, clean facilities and only cost me $5.00 for the entire day. I did not stay in the cabins but noticed that you can rent them via the internet. Do use “Booked It”! They are a rip off no matter what price they advertise. I would recommend “Expedia” because you can cancel your reservation at any time without penalty.

Ardmore, Oklahoma is about 25 miles south of Turner Falls with a multitude of lodging, dining possibilities with additional recreational interests just in case you would like to spend more time in the area. As a matter of fact, I had supper at the “Two Frogs Grill” located in Ardmore and can highly recommend their brilliant blackened Red Snapper.

It was a fun day trip. I got a lot of beautiful pictures, met some interesting people and walked for hours. Make sure you wear the appropriate footwear to comfortably walk the terrain. I was told by the bravest of visitors that the water was very cold. It’s the time of the year.

I have selected the amazing stylings of Chris Stapleton to accompany this post of the song is "More of You". The genre is straight-up country.

I am also listing the lyrics for your reading pleasure.
     
"More of You"
When I think of you and the first time we met
And I heard the sound of your sweet gentle voice
My heart took me over and gave me no choice
And right then I knew

It makes me want more of you
Again, and again
I fall more in love with you
Than I've ever been
From the moment you wake me up
Till you kiss me goodnight
Everything that you do
It makes me want more of you

When I look at you now that years have gone by
I think of the memories that time can't erase
And all of the smiles that you've brought to my face
Your love's been so true

When I leave this earth, you'll be holding my hand
And it gives me comfort to know you'll be there
And I'll thank the Lord for the love that we share
You're heaven to me

Everything that you do
It makes me want more of you

I want you baby so bad....

Brett Eldredge "Drunk On Your Love" #MyLover #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #LoveOfMyLife

Introduction:

But the you who you are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday, the same you I’ll be in love with tomorrow.” 

― Gayle Forman

The song I am picking for this evening is titled "Drunk On Your Love(2)  sung by Brett Eldredge. The video was published on Jan 15, 2016 on YouTube by Brett Eldredge.

"Drunk On Your Love" is the 9th track on Brett Eldredge's album titled "Illinois" which was released on September 11, 2015. Brett is from Paris, Illinois, United States and his genre is straight up country.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Drunk On Your Love" (3)

The second she walked through the door, I caught a buzz
One taste from your lips knocked me out just like a drug
The rest of the night's kind of blurry
Now the sun's peeking through the shades
I can't help but laugh cause I kind of like feeling this way

I woke up, up still drunk, drunk
On your love, love, on your love, love
Now I know why-y I'm feeling so high, high
Cause I'm still drunk, drunk on your love, on your love

It's not in the whiskey, tequila or the wine
It's all about the touch and the fire in your eyes
It gets me fumbling always stumbling through a haze
I got plenty to do just laying here with you all day

I woke up, up still drunk, drunk
On your love, love, on your love, love
Now I know why-y I'm feeling so high, high
Cause I'm still drunk, drunk on your love, on your love

Wish I could bottle you up and drink you in all day long
Every day singing this song

I woke up, up still drunk, drunk
On your love, love, on your love, love
Now I know why-y I'm feeling so high, high
Cause I'm still drunk, drunk on your love, on your love

(Woke up still drunk on your love)
On your love, on your love
On your love
On your love, on your love
On your love, get drunk on your love, yeah
I'm so drunk

Sarah McLachlan - In the arms of an angel #RESPECT #Prayers #Las Vegas #Nevada #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.” 

― J.R.R. Tolkien

The song I am picking for this evening is titled "Sarah McLachlan - In the arms of an angel" (2) . The video was published on Jul 4, 2013 on YouTube by Beta Hi-Fi Archive. 

I pray for all the folks in Las Vegas, Nevada. Give praise to those that risked their life to help others. Finally, my hope is that we all come together and show respect for those families that have to bury family members during these dark sad days.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Angel" (3)

Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay
there's always some reason
to feel not good enough
and it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
oh beautiful release
memories seep from my veins
let me be empty
and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

in the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

so tired of the straight line
and everywhere you turn
there's vultures and thieves at your back
and the storm keeps on twisting
you keep on building the lies
that you make up for all that you lack
it don't make no difference
escaping one last time
it's easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

in the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

Music is a language and these are my final thoughts for this evening. Stay safe!

Peace and Love Always
Diana Mary Sharpton
