Clarity in the fog

It's rather like that recent rash of commercials, about preferring "and" to "or:" life is somehow much richer and more beautiful when we find a way to incorporate or balance both sides of being: body and spirit, left and right, light and dark...

I read your title as Charity in the Fog and after thinking about it a bit, it felt apropos for the holidays. It's my preferred method of giving, anonymously so I can watch the joy on faces!!
