A Foggy Morning



"Sometimes we need the fog to remind ourselves that all of life is not black and 
white."  -  Jonathon Lockwood Huie


The morning fog didn't last long, but it was long enough to get me thinking...

Just as the fog distorts my view of the lake, how much do my own beliefs and perceptions distort my view of the world?

Do I search for proof of my beliefs and unconsciously, or sometimes consciously, ignore any evidence to the contrary?

What if I tried seeing things from a different perspective, without being defensive about my own views?

Maybe I will sit on the bench and think on all that for a bit...  

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day!

We were laughing uncontrollably.
