The wheel turns

Showers in the area today - our first autumnal snap of cool air. We were worrying about it yesterday, as our house is still a bit "open to the elements", with no door installed. We hauled out the tarp and tucked away all the boxes of items unpacked (like the ceiling fan and so forth). This morning on the approach to the bridge, I emerged from under the low-hanging sky to see San Francisco laying before me all dressed in silver and grey, like a pencil drawing, gleaming in graphite. The bay was as still as a pond.

Here's a lovely website with images of dancing through the eras. I love to look at old illustrations, especially on sheet music. I found this site referenced on one of my favorite blogs, Bibliodyssey.
