dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam, veiled in sun, Corte Madera Creek

The brilliant light of the setting sun obliterated the the peaks of Mt. Tam from the angle I tried to catch the turkey vulture that swooped lower and lower in front of it making arcs over the Corte Madera Creek. Just because I can’t see the ridge, it doesn’t meant it’s not there; in this case, I have more than faith for the foundation of my belief.

    When I lived where I saw the mountain (unobstructed) every day, I thought of it as “appearing” and “going away”, depending on light/weather. It’s sweet to watch the daily take on it that you share with us.

    Pat: the mountain often seems to come and go, or “appear” and then recede, especially with the way the light moves through the seasons. I am very conscious this year of how subtly the sun seems to be “making its way” around the peaks as we move from winter toward spring.
