Light the Corner of My Mind

Now, that we’re hunkering down into that dreaded event that is a Pacific Northwest autumn, complete with wind, heavy rain and worst of all, early darkness, I’m recalling a day not so long ago (um, last week).

The sun shone, the cormorants murmured, the water sweetly ebbed and flowed.

It was the Perfect Fall Day.

It looked like this:
Fort Ward State Park

Calms you down, doesn’t it?

These pictures were all taken at Fort Ward State Park, on the south end of Bainbridge Island, WA.

I’m gonna return to this page as this La Nina fall proceeds and breathe deeply and slowly as I review the scene….

And get some Herradura.

If you live in a northern clime, how do you handle the winter darkness?
