As with many things in nature,
fog can have good qualities and bad.
Yesterday it rained almost the entire day,
and this morning was damp and warm.
So all the slender branches held tiny, clear drops of water.
And I awoke to fog lingering around the trees and houses.
A light fog like this softens all the hard edges
and muffles the reverberation of sound.
It's a lovely way to start--or end--the day.
