Last night as I set out at 10:00 to pick Katie up from a Back to School movie night in the next town over I noticed an unusual sight. Fog dropped in or floated up or whatever fog does...creeps in on little cat's feet....at the baseball field. It was eerie and beautiful.
On the way home I stopped at the ballpark to try to take a few pictures with my phone.
The pictures are not exactly what I was seeing. The glare of the lights made big blobs of light. They took away from the fog.
But that's okay.
It was beautiful and still and unusual and I will remember that.
The other day Katie was really obsessing about her hair. She could not get the sock bun to look right.
She reminded me of myself. Sometimes I obsess about something so little and unimportant that it takes the joy out of whatever I am doing.
I told her of the time I was standing on the Eiffel Tower and was totally freaking out because my camera was doing something weird. There I was, in Paris, with my husband and daughter, in France, ON THE EIFFEL TOWER, and I was upset about my camera. (Fortunately said fit only lasted five minutes. But it was a stressful five minutes.)
Katie got what I was saying.
Lesson learned. Or at least.....lesson taught.
We can't let little upsets mar the big beautiful picture.
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
