A view to remember

 By Ted Grussing

Into ... the night ... perhaps my favorite time of day. I took this shot on my way home from California, Monday evening near Salome, Arizona. I think the range that is visible is the westerly end of the Harcuvar range. The railroad tracks were gleaming in the late light and the warning of the railroad crossing and stop signs are fixed, waiting for the chance to inform a passing vehicle of impending danger ... or not. It was a lonely, quiet time out there and no traffic on wheels of rubber or steel. The wind was blowing and the Safeway in Wickenburg only an hour or so away ... a banana, cantaloupe spears and a package of Lox awaited my arrival.

It was necessary to revert to Win 8 Pro from the preview version to get the new Win 8.1 Pro and have an operating system that Microsoft will support. The past two days have seen more than a few difficulties as a new installation was required that wiped all apps along with my customizations of them. The install did not go well and a critical file keeps the OS from loading properly; I have devised a work around, and have spent untold hours with MS tech support and so far no one has been able to fix things. Never, ever try a preview that will require you to revert to your original OS.

Lost all the Max Ehrmann quotes I have collected so starting to rebuild them too. We'll go with a new one every night until I again accumulate a plethora of them.

Also going to start putting captions on the photos as I did when I framed them; have had many requests for them and the captions do provide some insight into my mind, what the image means to me and sometimes why I took it.

And now we are into the weekend, more work on the OS and hopefully second level support can fix my issues. Back on Monday morning ... enjoy the beauty of these fall days and the snow up on the plateau and ...



Whatever else you do or forbear, impose upon yourself the task of happiness;

And now and then abandon yourself to the joy of laughter.

Max Ehrmann
