TGIF January 8


Brief and bitterly cold wait.  About 10 of us in the line had a little “freezing our asses off in the cold wind” bonding moment.  Complaining and laughing about the miserable weather.  I’m snug in the back seat of an older 2-door BMW.  No radio.  No talk.  Both traffic and fog thin out as we speed closer to San Francisco in the Friday light traffic.

A lone white egret stands on a rock in the shallow water near the new Bay Bridge construction, gravely regarding the passing motor madness.
