This was satisfying. The sun sets every day, but it was wonderful to take some time to really appreciate it, and pay attention to it.

It's hard to read the sun as it loses its edge. My eyes kept showing me a line through it, as if it was sinking behind a fence... It also looked strangely flat on top, for no apparent reason. Here you can see that it looks like it is penetrating the horizon line in a way that doesn't merely look reflective... Fun with optics!
There has been a TON of hard work in weeding and clearing trash that has blown or sunk or otherwise turned up along the Lake Merced Basin, and I admire the effort that went into it. (Below the bottom edge of this photo are garbage bags, part of an old row boat, and other debris...) It feels like this view of this particular grove is completely new.

I like to draw with crayons. Grown-up crayons. Water soluble Swiss crayons. Sometimes touched up with watercolor pencils. (Also grown-up, and in this case also Swiss.)
I'm warming up to another project, one based on things representing reality, but this is RELAXING. I need to relax so much more than I do.
