Evening Page ~ The Mountain

The day started out slightly cool and grey–a break from the heat of summer from last week. The day itself was good. 

The mountain that I pass every day looked more stunning this morning as the low clouds embraced its peak; and the haze of yesterday lifted to reveal his true colors. This great mountain mostly speaks to me as an old wise man; occasionally, though, he shape-shifts into a mercurial woman.

Today's photo is a shot of an Iris that I took in the pond of the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. The Iris is one of my favorite flowers.

I like the photos. They have a calming effect. Iris is my favorite, too. No matter how many times I see, I never get bored.

Hi Keiko,

Looking at the koi swimming around and poking their noses out of the water makes me feel calm. This Iris looked particularly beautiful on this day. Me too. I can look and look and look and be entertained.

Glad you enjoyed the photos. : )
