Winter slouches back.
Tule fog, morning haze,
flatten all to gray.
Here’s a great article that Peter L’Abbe sent my way.
A unique life! Of course, all lives are unique.
I want to sit and have a pint with Maurice and talk woodgrain and tool sharpening.
I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Devil’s Teeth’, a great short film about living, dreaming and aging!
Made by local Bayarea film-maker Roger Teich about Ron Elliot the only urchin diver in the Great White shark infested waters of the Farallon Islands off our coast. Such hard work under such perilous conditions.
I spent the last two days at my favorite retreat in NorCal, Steep Ravine. I’ve posted about this special place a few times – here and here. Each time I go, its a great mix of the familiar and the totally new. This trip Sandra and I went with our friends Tania and Philip. It was their first time at Steep Ravine and they were enamored.
We caught a delicious sunset as the westering sun snuck out under the last of the weekend’s rain presaging a clear star-filled night of talking around the potbelly stove followed by a gorgeous sunny Monday of bush-waking and beach strolling. In my other Steep Ravine posts I focussed on the ocean and the cabins themselves, this time I’d like to take you up into the redwood forests in the hills behind the cabins!
