dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam, glimpsed from the parking lot of Redwood High School, Larkspur

Seems to me that this review of Redwood High School on yelp gives a pretty good idea of some people’s experience of this place: “I went, I survived, I partied, I conquered, I partied, I’m alive, Always had the best parties and hottest chicks – I recommend sending your kids to Redwood Fo Sho!!”

Although, if you were to ask my children, who also went there, you are likely to get somewhat different answers, “Fo Sho,” some that would start and end with “I went.”

Funny, at least in my experience, how the long and seemingly solid shadow high school casts can dwarf a mountain, while rendering it ethereal.
