FOG: Practicing Gratitude

 In My Blogs

Recently, a wise teacher offered a single word to encompass the myriad of feelings and frustrations I shared about unknowns in my life. Today’s blog is primarily pictorial, focusing on the beauty of the unseen, the reality that many things will become known through exercising patience, and that fog does not exist when we stay in the moment and look at what is close at hand.

The following photos were all shot within a half hour, early morning, October 28th, 2017. A treasury of nature’s beauty suggesting that fog need not be a negative.

    These photos just gave me a lovely pause in a frantic morning. Thanks for reminding me to tap into that peaceful place we have and cover up all too often! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Ann.

      Holidays bring a lot of joy. And also, some stress. Living in fog offers an oasis.

      Thanks Lise. The pond I live near seems to offer endless opportunities for contemplation.
