dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tamalpais, September 25, 2012

Mt. Tam glimpsed from the path along Corte Madera Creek, Greenbrae

A busy day, most of it gone by in a daze … and every time I would glance at Mt. Tam as I ran errands, in the car, on the bike, or on foot, a day shrouded in haze as well. But there was that moment by the Corte Madera Creek, the bicycle leaned against the picnic table, when I sat down long enough to take in the landscape changing practically in front of my eyes as the late September light kept retouching the colors laid down by a summer that had moved on to work on the canvasses of memory.
