I love the fog…

Chatting this Tuesday at the Cafe

Not much happening today.
But it was a beautiful fall day that started with fog.
I love foggy mornings!
This morning’s fog was exceptional.


The afternoon was wonderful, too.


And a thought for

Did you ever wonder why Rudolph’s nose was red?


“Santa knows Physics: Of all colors, Red Light penetrates fog best.
That’s why Benny the Blue-nosed reindeer never got the gig.”

Walking in the fog…

Today on my walk there wasn’t any sun but it was still wonderful.
Today was a day of cool misty fog.
I love walking in the fog.


As is my habit while walking I was letting my mind wander.
Once again it lit upon the In Other Words prompt,

An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.
Kahlil Gibran

It’s a lovely quote but I don’t agree.
I think an exaggeration is a truth that has lost its way
and stumbled into the world of lies.
Maybe exaggeration isn’t an all out lie
but it isn’t an all out truth either.

I do my share of exaggerating and fudging the truth to be sure
so I know of what I write.
I try hard to stick to just the facts as boring as they may be.
Yet, there are those times that boring is…well boring
and I perhaps embellish the telling a bit.
Bet you do too.
If you say you never do then I am pretty sure you are …

Thursday’s Special: favorite and before…

Early Fall Morning


In the morning before the sun burns off the fog
is one of my favorite times to sit on my balcony
and watch the city skyline come into view.

It is cool and quiet and peaceful
before the city wakes up

Sunday, a blessing taken for granted…

I love foggy days.


The picture is the view from my balcony one foggy morning.
This time of year there are many such mornings.

Some people don’t like fog.
They think it is eerie and kind of frightening.

 I am thankful for the fog.
It is like God puts a veil over the city for a while
hiding the hardness and harshness of it.

I think it is beautiful and kind of enchanting.
There is mystery about it
and yet I find it oddly comforting.

I like the quiet of a fog
and the feel of it on my skin.

I believe fog is a blessing
too easily overlooked and taken for granted.

Today, I think maybe I like the fog because it comes on little cat feet.


The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
Carl Sandburg
