|This image was taken in an industrial portion of Toledo's East Side. Power, in
parallel rows, is being
shunted to and from points in the Midwest -- and a bit of remaining farmland
sits beside the road, and in front of an indistinct railroad
bridge across the Maumee River. A large refinery and
petroleum storage area lies to the right.
A November rain was just about to begin at the time of the photo. I
certainly was not thinking that we would be burying my Father on another
late autumn day, fairly close by, and not too far off in time.
