dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed from the parking lot of Woodlands Market, Kentfield

Every once in a while I remember the tiny grocery store that Woodlands Market used to be – probably some 20 years ago now – and the Italian restaurant, La Lanterna, that was in the place where Woodlands Cafe is now. The person that I was, who shopped at that tiny grocery store and the one that dined at La Lanterna, however, is as out of reach of my memory as clarity is from the mountain ridge on this hazy late afternoon.
