During the 2011 Project I have explored a number of topics and themes and that includes various pieces dedicated to a specific color. For today it is green. We have had plenty of early rain in the Bay Area. It puts an end to the fire season, scours the air and best of all, the hills will start turning green early this rainy season. San Francisco is a city where lawns are a rarity, but we have plenty of grassy hills providing a backdrop from Bernal Heights to Twin Peaks to the Marin Headlands. And when our hills go all Ireland on us, it’s pretty spectacular. This afternoon I am heading over the Golden Gate Bridge. I’ll be talking to the grass and giving It some words of encouragement.
