Fog

It wasn’t the fog I minded, Cathleen. I really love fog. It hides you from the world and the world from you. You feel that everything has changed, and nothing is what it seemed to be. No one can find or touch you any more.”
― Eugene O’Neill

(heavy fog on a typical January day in Georgia / Julie Cook / 2015)

Mystical shroud, thick and damp, swaddles a drowsy new year.
Low and slow hangs the young Winter’s sky as she dips to kiss the ground.
Where does the earth end and the sky so wide begin?
Somewhere hidden in the grey whispers the Fog.

    We experienced a variety of weather yesterday and it continues today – fog, rain, freezing rain, snow, rain again, and the promise of dipping temperatures later today. It almost seems appropriate as the Holy Family prepares to flee to Egypt in what must have been a very dark and dreary time in their lives. Prayers that you will have some time for rest and reflection after a very busy time.

    • It is indeed something to imagine the circumstances, the emotions, the worry, the trepidation… that a young couple as new parents, with the weight of knowing they weren’t just “any” new parents, experienced so long ago during a most perilous time!!
      Thank you Lynda for always pulling us back to the fact that what we experience today, has been previously “lived” by those who paved the way for our salvation!!
      Hugs and love—Julie

    Happy New Year Julie. I hope 2015 is a great year for you and your family. While you shiver in the cold extremes of winter we are sweltering in the extraordinary heat of summer. 😉

    • Happy New Year Jenna!!! It just blows my mind about this world of ours—I’m bundled up in a cold rain and fog and you’re enjoying sun, too much heat it sounds, flowers and greenery—
      Stay cool while I stay warm 🙂
      Hugs and love Jenna—julie

    And that is what it looked like here in the UK today too, Julie. We had a very foggy drive to church this morning. After we managed to get into our frozen car!

    • It has been so thick for two days now, but a front has come through–we will have clearing skies, thank the Lord, but the coldest weather of the season thus far this coming week 🙂
      I hope you have a great week—hopefully not much traveling yet—
      Hugs to you David—Julie

  6. Oh, I love this. I love fog. And I love you. Hugs, N ❤
