@ajitshembekar So, you know how movie directors use a "green screen" to create computer generated images? Well, my personal version of it, and also one of my favorite weather patterns, is dense fog. What really excites me about fog is it's ability to let your imagination run unbridled, wild and free... the feeling of endless possibilities just around the corner behind the fog ... imagine a rugged coastline, or high mountain peaks, alpine forests... yep, all just around the corner. And with a strong imagination, you can almost make the other senses "smell" and "hear" the salty air and crashing waves, or the pine cones and rustling pine trees... yep, all just around the corner. You could be in the middle of urban-anywhere, but your mind can "see" the vista of your choice... yep, just beyond the foggy horizon.
Perhaps my affinity for fog was shaped by my earliest memory of it, as a little child, watching an ancient 8mm home movie, in which my mother and her siblings, all laughing children, not yet in their teens, were seen emerging magically from a dense fog, high on top of a mountain.
This time around, fog settled in just as we were driving through some (already truly) beautiful, remote country side. Luckily for you, there are actually discernable roads and trees you can see... because, way back in school, some thirty odd years ago, I created a slide show of *just* dense fog for my friends, and, well, my audience didn't quite "see" it.
But, I hope you, too, have your own version of a "green screen". It helps build imagination, the most powerful thing we can wield.
