The beauty of creation burned eternally into the mind's eye
By Ted Grussing
Nightfall... and so it was that we watched the sun set last night from the west side of the San Francisco Peaks and the meadows were holding on to the illumination as the shadows deepened and soon it was night and the sleeping volcanoes continued their long rest and all was still. Memories of other sunsets here and in other places flooded the mind and the beauty of creation burned eternally into the mind's eye ... and it is good ... and tomorrow I know that the scene will be repeated as it has since long before mankind graced the face of the earth and will do so long after we are gone.
A quiet day today and later this morning we leave to catch the Verde Canyon train ... four hours enjoying the beauty along the Verde River in the canyons that we have flown over so many times. Hoping for some good photo ops and the relaxation found only on a train.
Have a great day and always look for the beauty that is around you and share your joy. It is a wonderful world and smile at someone you meet today ... it will be returned ... costs nothing and enriches both of you.
At nightfall...though I know I shall sometime no more
Open my eyes to the light or day, I am one who looks at stars when
Unchained from the work-bench at Nightfall.
They are a sign that I am not ephemeral,
Not you, nor you, whoever you are.
The dawn comes and the dark and the sign sparkling in the brooding night,
