After a jam packed hump day, this lil blogger needed a rest day, so I hope you
The Fog comes
On little cat feet
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
Beautiful, no? It put me in a calm place, and it's been a wonderful day since. Sights like this remind me that life doesn't have to be a go go go all the time, and that we should pause to enjoy the beauty around us and even feel free to get lost into it a little bit.
Speaking of getting lost, this reminded me of another past time that I don't share often enough in the blog world-my passion for reading. Yup, I was "that child" that read under the covers with a flashlight after bedtime, and devoured every book I could find. Hey, it netted me a 760 on my verbal section of SATs, so it was good for something!!
