The spectacular stems from the everyday. Moments of beauty can evoke the otherworldly. On October 31st, we welcome the strange. Instead of beating back the fear of the unknown, we celebrate what could be.
This morning the sun broke over the Pacific throwing its light on Mendocino County’s rugged coastline. The ancient bluffs obscured in fog were suffused with light. The marine layer acted as a prism refracting the sunrise and saturating the horizon in reds, indigos, violets, and blues.
A coastal resident in Albion looked westward. The road they walked stretched until it disappeared into the colors and mist. On any other day, this would be a morning sunrise on the Mendocino Coast. But today, October 31st, this resident caught a glimpse of the transcendent.
