I’m working on liking fog.  I have hated it, gotten depressed by it, wished it away, ignored it.  But this morning there it was again.  This is the treeline I normally see when I look up the road on my morning walk.Image

The open field is a dairy farm and behind those hills is the start of one section of Redwoods National and State Park.  This morning I could not see the hills.  The fog shrouded everything except the very bottom low row of grey green trees and farmhouse.  As I walked up the road I decided to think about someone telling me recently they “love” the fog.  Since it’s a fact of life here it seems I should at least try to like it and come to peace with it.  So I turned off the main road and made my way a few hundred yards to a 20 acre wood.  I felt the coolness in the air.  I breathed in the moisture.  And I thought about how many people would love to be here, fog or not.  And how the fog is part of a micro climate that lets us have magnificent redwood forests in over 75% of this county.  I’m making progress.  And to top it all off the sun came out this afternoon.  Life is good.

  1. in Seattle, I have learned to love all the shades of fog and grey..but it’s an acquired “taste” for sure!

    • I live in a rural area 2 hours from the closest shopping mall type city. There are very few things to do indoors so I have become very self-sufficient in teaching myself various crafts and shopping for supplies over the internet. Fabric and fiber are great antidotes to gray days!
