The letter W stands for W_ _ . WordPress seems to be having some problems for some of us with uploading photos. You can peruse the WP Forum to read the rants, wailings and gnashing of teeth, mine included.
In the happy face/ W space above that bears witness to a space that I would like to otherwise use for a photo, I smile, I laugh in the face of adversity. Ha!
If you can imagine that in the photo in the happy face space above, there is either a grouping of Windmills or a rock Wall; I hadn’t decided which photo I was going to use.
The windmills sit atop the Altamont Pass in Northern California; they are wind turbines. This particular grouping look to me like soldiers scattered on a battlefield of windblown dried-golden grasses with just hints of green against a cobalt blue sky. The windmills are white.
The photo of the wall is of a black rock wall with a white gate that leads from one field to another. A giant cactus, elongated and spindly, languishes over a portion of the wall along with scrub trees. I took this photo in Kauai several years ago, in a church yard.
I hope that WordPress soon corrects the little problem some of us are having. I will be waiting. In the meantime, be filled with the wonder and joy of the season.
