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?

    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.

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

    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!

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