Fog ~

Fog is like a big gray wall, except that it is all soft and misty. It 
seems to ensnare you in a realm all your own and set you entirely 
apart from the outside world. You may walk on and on and never 
appear to be going anywhere. Time seems to stand still.
   Some people think of fog as dreary and forbidding. I think it is
beautiful and mysterious. When you approach a light very closely 
you can see the fog softly floating about like beautiful billowy 
clouds . It seems as though it is trying to enclose the light and hide it 
completely from view.
   I love the musty damp smell that accompanies a fog. It is utterly thrilling
to wander aimlessly when mists change the world, making everything
even yourself, feel unreal.

  1. How I look forward to the tule fogs of the Sacramento Valley in Autumn --especially after this very hot summer. Fog indeed transforms the familiar into somewhere magical.

  4. I love fog. It is beautiful and mysterious, and changes one;'s experience of the landscape. It reminds me of outdoors times and places I have enjoyed. Relaxing, sleepy. Time to build a nice fire, and relax.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  8. I love fog, too. It softens and blurs our world. We're heading into a foggy time of year for us so I'm excited. Mind you, when I lived on the ocean, fog could make the world a scary scary place. Totally impenetrable. But still cool (except when driving) :)

  13. Oh I know exactly what you mean...fog is so ethereal, so mysterious. I love the way it transforms even ordinary everyday things into something unfathomable...makes venturing outdoors such an adventure.
    On a foggy day I feel like a child again, on the verge of a fabulous adventure!
    I can't wait for October, and all those foggy mornings!!!

    Many thanks for this, Margie.
    I love it xxx

    Kim, another fog lover... Yay!
    And I can imagine it could be very scary living on the ocean and driving, well, that is so awful!
    Once when I was driving in the fog, I could not see a thing.
    I had to pull over till the fog passed and it was a long time.

    Gail, your words were poetry to me.
    You should write!
    Thanks for the kind words.
    Love & peace to you.
