ALL TRULY GREAT THOUGHTS ARE CONCEIVED BY WALKING ——-Nietzsche
I did my good deed for the day a couple of weeks ago . The phone rang in the morning —- desperate plea ! A friend was sick , so sick that she couldn’t drive her car home from work . Would I come over and pick it up and leave it at her house .
By chance I was able to take the metro over to her workplace . It was the school that happened to have been my workplace several years back . I would have to take the Gold Line to Union Station and then catch the Red Line to Beverly . Ada was able to give me a ride to the Gold Line station before she had to be at her work . A year or so from now I’ll be able to walk to the metro , if all goes well . It’ll come this far east , but not yet . Not by two weeks ago .
I drove my friend’s car back to her house and left the key under the doormat . She lives in a house about a mile from mine , so I took a walk home . It was a great day , a perfect day for a walk .
I shot a couple of pictures of the right-of-way where the Gold line will be extended . The track signals are still there from a long gone train line . Gone , but not completely forgotten . The old tracks were left in the asphalt crossing the road . The other tracks are way gone . Who could have foreseen a new train line and so left the rights-of-way clear ? I wonder .
It was known as MAD High School . Did you go to MAD High ? Plenty of the older folks in Monrovia , Arcadia , and Duarte did .
I wonder if the high school back then had a school magazine ? Think about it . Seems to me I remember one .
