Blessed fog

When I was in college in New England, I loved foggy days; I always felt like I had the campus to myself.  Some 40 years later I still appreciate the peacefulness of fog, but for different reasons. I love the way fog reduces distractions -- both visual and audible -- so that what you do hear and see stands out in a field of gray, of silence. It's a bit like the peace I find in meditation: the constant noise of surrounding thoughts is softened and faded, so that what needs to be seen, heard, or understood shines forth...
