A DRIFTING HALO written by: Mark Tulin The cool of the ocean and the warmth of the heavens come together to form a slow-moving halo that lingers in the misty atmosphere. A welcoming celestial sheath that grazes over the boats below, and continues its journey crossing mountaintops of green and gold. And when the hot sun appears in the early afternoon over a jagged Pacific coast, the sunlight transforms this drifting halo into a sky of Rembrandt blue.
