Last Saturday the Sedona Marathon ran through the Kachina subdivision-my subdivision.  My feelings on this were made known and many of you shared my concerns. But that is not the purpose of this “Letter”.

I feel that it is also necessary to “pat people on the back” when they have done a good job; and such is the case with the Sedona Marathon Committee and persons and agencies involved. From my perspective, which was from my dining room with a warm cup of coffee, the entire marathon involvement with the Kachina subdivision was very professional that day. Read More→

… my mind was fried finishing up the new computer and installing all the software again. Many actions to re-write and preferences and shortcuts to establish, but it is worth it. The computer is operating flawlessly and all three monitors have a purpose which is working out well … I think so anyhow. The fourth monitor will be functional next week. The photo tonight is the third one I started and now am running short on time so it will have to do. It is a shot of part of Hoodoo city on the upper eastern reaches of Sycamore Canyon. Love that area of the canyon and you get the feeling that you are among a city frozen in time and watched over by the slowly eroding sentinels.
