dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed from the pedestrian and bike overpass from the Larkspur Ferry Terminal to the Marin Country Mart above Sir Francis Drake Blvd. in Greenbrae

A busy day, with plenty of “traffic” — that is, sudden small emergencies and long-standing chores — left little time or energy for considering the mountain in the frieze of pictures and words. But once the sun started to slip toward the horizon, I was able to get away on the bike for a little ride. Once on the bike, I didn’t want to stop, unless I had to… and so once again, the mountain is an outline of distances.
