Mutterings of a Fool

Man, Dad, Runner, Chief dog walker

The Gallery – Sun

Californian sun.

Warm, strong, constant.

Beating down on still pale skin.

Fuelling long evenings of food and beer.

Illuminating the hills, browning the grass.

But no respite or break, shade commanding a premium.

Doesn’t stop the running of course.

Crazy fool.

    Never knew you were so poetic! Great pic. I like the feelings it conveys. I want to say very “American” if that makes sense.
