Foggy Minds



We were up early to see the ducks on the river, to name them, to swoon over their delicate colors. But the fog was thick and we could not see what was before us. So we stood and quietly admired the fog and how it softens the edges and diffuses the light. Someone remarked,  that soon the sun will burn off the fog and we will be able to see the much anticipated migrating waterfowl.

I wondered what burns off the fog in our minds.

Knowledge?

But you know, some times ignorance is blissful and calm,
just not all the time.


See more and learn more about water by visiting Watery Wednesday.

What a beautiful painting this would make. It's really a lovely picture.
I'm not sure if the fog ever burns off my mind. Ha-ha!
