A Sea of Grass
There are many types of grass forming a huge, undisciplined lawn on the northern seashore of the Presidio...
...between the Marina district and the Golden Gate Bridge.
When the San Francisco Opera runs out of room, rehearsals are sometimes held in an abandoned YMCA facility across from the lawn and under the bridge.
I've just been cast as a supernumerary in a production of "The Magic Flute"...
...which started rehearsals on Tuesday.
I had forgotten how breathtakingly beautiful the area can be, particularly when the scene looks like a sea of grass.
