Twilight and Fog

A few nights ago, twilight brought a moment of crystalline clarity. The yard turned a warm, monochrome blue. Today, an odd midday fog washed everything blue again, but it was a cheerless, grainy blue. Dandelions folded, tree limbs drooped, and the only creatures that stirred were a pair of restless seagulls over a nearby pond. Both scenes reflected my mood, eerily accurate manifestations of changing emotional weather. How’s the weather, where you are?

      Thank you. I think everyone feels a little unsteady, this time of year.

    Rae: Feeling much the same as you today. My heart sank immediately upon looking out the window and seeing the mist hanging over us…again! Best wishes for a bright sunny tomorrow!

      I’m hoping for sun soon, though the rain has been nice for our yard. Maybe we’ll both wake to sunshine tomorrow!

    My emotional weather and weather outside are one…only I can’t photograph it! Great pictures.

    I enjoy your posts so much, Rae! Not only for the photographs that capture mood and movement wonderfully in a still, but also for your lyrical writing on how they reflect and affect you.
