The light of San Francisco is a sea light, an island light
And the light of fog blanketing the hills drifting in at night through the Golden Gate to lie on the city at dawn.
And then the halcyon late mornings after the fog burns off and the sun paints white houses with the sea light of Greece with sharp clean shadows making the town look like it had just been painted.
But the wind comes up at four o’clock sweeping the hills. And then the veil of light of early evening.
And then another scrim when the new night fog floats in.
And in that vale of light the city drifts anchorless upon the ocean.
