dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed from Bon Air Road in Greenbrae

I pulled over to the curb by Marin General Hospital when I spotted an open parking space. For a couple of seconds the road was clear in both directions so that I could see the mountain shimmer a blue-green or green-blue, if you like, in the afternoon’s hazy heat, which registered at 89 degrees at the time. Summer’s just around the next corner. Or not, given the fluctuations in weather lately.
