dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tamalpais, October 29, 2012

Mt. Tam glimpsed in the glare of sun

Still sunny, still warm, still calm … but I am not going to belabor it, given the monster storm on the other side of the continent. The only rent in this gentle fabric of our halcyon days is the sudden shriek of crows that comes on suddenly, as if an alarm had been set off, only to drop back into an almost airless silence as fast as it came on.
