This photo was taken on a cross-country ski trip in Yosemite.

Looking out to Half-Dome on a cold, clear day, my spirits rise.

The mountain brings, along with its majesty, a certain loss of words. What is there to say? All the descriptions of the nuanced colours and shades of its sides, the beautiful hat of snow, all the histories and stories here---it's all been said by better poets than I. So, I choose to just be present.
