Out of the Fog

One morning last week, as I was walking across the parking lot to go in the front door of work, I noticed a real picturesque scene.

The parking lot was draped in fog--which always makes it kinda eerie, but it was just after dawn so the sky was brightening up lending a surreal lighting to the parking lot. On top of this, the fog was very close to the ground and so the flag, illuminated as it was, was flying above the fog boldly waving in a light breeze.

Wow I was a cool scene and I wished I had a camera or was an artist to be able to process the scene from my mind onto canvas.

I was filled at the same time with a feeling of patriotism and awe about the beauty of the world around us. Sometime we need to stop to smell the flowers--and likewise we need to stop to see the world and take it in.

Those are the moments where we realize we are part of something larger than ourselves.
