And so, fog has settled like a wet blanket upon the valley. Slowly, like a ghost moving in slow motion, it invaded the world before me, blinding me….

If you pay close attention, you can see the forms of fog as it filters the frosty sunlight through its damp doubtful fingers… Fog makes me think of blindness and ghostly apparitions, it makes me feel trapped…ensnared somewhere in the world of dreams and the imaginary….

I don’t like fog…. But I’m finally home now. Like a wild rabbit in her cozy burrow in the ground that shelters it from cold wind, shades it from hot sun, and keeps it snug and warm during snow and rain… that’s how I feel, when I’m at home.


  1. Charming blog....Loved my visit , Enjoy the Holidays and stop over when you have a minute!...Enchanting place here, xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

  2. Glad you made it home safely, through the fog.

    We don't think of fog as going with Christmas, but it can be caused by cold ground and warmer air, I guess. I'm no meteorologist!

    What I wanted to say was, that even fog can make for beautiful photos. :-)

    Happy Christmas to you and yours!

  3. A road trip through fog is always a little tense as you never know what is ahead. But yet it also offers mystery....sort of like those old books where the woman waits for her man. Looking everywhere, wondering if that form is him; until at last he is walking towards her. Mystery and romance! in the form of fog!!!
    Guess I've been reading too many books!!!

  4. I don't like driving in the fog, but I love it at other times. It reminds me of Mother Nature wraping me in her loving arms.


  5. Same here. Fog reminds me of scary movies.

  6. Living in Oregon, we have a LOT of fog. It used to depress me until I started calling it Mist instead of Fog. Mist is much more magical. Now I love seeing the trees come swirling out of the mist. Ghosts in the garden - but friendly, welcome ghosts.

  7. Dear Cielo.....fog is eerie.
    Sometimes it can come out of nowhere....I do not like driving in the fog.....

    Glad you are safely home ........

  8. So glad you are safe, sound, and snug in your personal oasis.

    I love the fog...perhaps it fills my mind with thoughts of magic and mystery.

    Warmest wishes dear Cielo to you and those you love best for the happiest holiday.

  9. Wesołych Świąt i Szczęsliwego Nowego 2010 Roku
    for you my sweet friend
    and for your family!


  10. The fog is always a little creepy to me. I guess I've watched too many Stephen King movies! LOL

  11. Love the way you write. Glad you made it home to a nice cup of tea. laurie

  12. Ceilo, that fog looks terrible!!!! It's pretty but, so dangerous to be out in. We had some of that in Fredericksburg last week & I didn't like it one bit. It is 11:21 PM & I have been waiting to post my Share Your Cottage Monday post but, my head is nodding... so it's off to take a warm bubble bath. I will check back before hopping into bed otherwise I will join in the morning. That 2 (or more) hour time difference is hard for us in the eastern or central time zone. Yet, it is early for posting for you guys on the western time zone... HUGS!

  13. It has been such a blessing to meet you in blogland...You have enriched my life. Blessings to you and yours....Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with many blessings.
