Off to the Golden Gate

“The Golden Gate Bridge’s daily strip tease from enveloping stoles of mist to full frontal glory is still the most provocative show in town.”

Mary Moore Mason

I read those words on February 5, 2017 early one morning as I was watching Taylor soundly snoring to the sounds of the storm outside.

I love early mornings. I love them even more than late nights, a far cry from my 20s and 30s. I don’t even need an alarm anymore to wake up. It was 5:26 AM as I my eyes opened to the sounds of pitter patter getting stronger. Before long, it was a full blown storm, romantic in so many ways. I’ve always loved the rain, storms even more. They give me a free pass to stay inside and indulge in my creative side.

After a morning full of rain, writing in my journal, we decided to venture out for a hike and a view of the Golden Gate. Northern California has gotten quite green over the past month plus. 

Raging rain started this day
Almost angry, dark and grey
On the couch I decided to stay
Taylor staring in my way

With inspiration, I was mostly writing
The meaning of life, I was reflecting
Its ups and downs, I was wondering
Still Taylor stared at me, intently listening

All the while, blue skies await
Before long, I was off to the Golden Gate
This afternoon for a special date
With Taylor of course, my best mate
