City Hall Christmas Glow Lights
One of the joys of my apartment in Civic Center is the view of San Francisco's City Hall dome looming over the Veterans Building.
Exhausted after a long day at work, I was laying on the couch Thursday evening and thought, "Am I hallucinating, or is the color of the dome changing?"
The answer is that for this year's holidays, the dome changes from red to green and back again every thirty seconds. It's bizarrely hypnotic, so I put on a recording of Lou Harrison's gamelan music and had a meditative California Christmas rainy night by myself which was some kind of perfection.
