If you’ve ever seen a movie set in England, you know there’s fog here every now and again. When it rolls in, it’s usually thick as the proverbial pea soup, and I just resign myself to a bad hair day and a slow drive to work. I never gave much thought to what happens if there’s fog when the air temperature is below 0°C, as it was all day today. Noted in meteorological observations as FZFG, freezing fog has the ability to coat anything and everything in dainty white crystals, turning the entire countryside into a dreamscape. One advantage to living in a rural area is that I’m not going to hold up traffic or cause an accident if I stop in the middle of the road and snap some photos over the hedge!
I want to be a writer, yet Henry David Thoreau's cautionary words echo in my brain: "How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live." Knowing I have promised to blog daily for the coming year, I am committed to living the next 365 days to the fullest by seizing new opportunities, making old routines less mundane, and immersing myself in the details of ordinary situations. Building these habits will be key to convincing myself that I can legitimately sit down to write a future bestseller!
