dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed from the parking lot of an office complex on Redwood Highway, Mill Valley

As thin layers of clouds kept gathering volume from morning on and filtering the light that bleached the mountain blue, so did my preoccupation grow with tasks that had to be accomplished sooner, rather than later. The only time left for a “Mt. Tam photo-op” then was a quick run to the hardware store with a detour to a conveniently empty parking lot from where to record the receding outline of the ridge, which, I suppose, mirrors my own waning focus on “peak issues” today.
