Fogged In

I'll admit, I kind of like fog.

I know it's a pain to drive in. And since i don't drive, that probably helps my relationship with fog. I just love it when I wake up in the morning, go to the computer and in the process see that the fog outside is so dense that I can barely see the building across the stress. It's like having my own little section of the world all to myself. So of course, I had to grab my camera and run out on the balcony. Then I had to run back inside to put the battery in that I'd had recharging overnight.

And because of the fog, it's quiet outside. No cars zooming up and down the street, honking or beeping. For a minute, it's like the entire world, consisting of all its worries and problems has just disappeared. No neighbors running up and down the stairs. We're all in our own little section of our world.

I can hear people starting to wake up. And bit by bit, the fog is lifting. It's still pretty dense but I can start to see more things outside.

Sigh. Time to go back to the world.


  1. I love fog too....I used to live by the ocean and would go for a walk whenever the fog was super thick.

  2. There is something wonderful about how the fog smells and feels when you're out in it. Do you miss the ocean a lot?
