I had intended to go back and add some text to go along with that email, but the day just got away with me. And by lunchtime, the day looked nothing like it had in the morning.
The morning had been one of dense fog, so much that everyone had to drive slower. Everything looked really cool. As you walked or drove, things were slowly revealed to you. There was far less to take in, far less to see -- maybe why it's loved by video game designers? Anyhow, I like fog for that very reason. You see a much smaller world, a more cozy, intimate, calmer world. It lends itself better to being aware of your surroundings and at the same time, being introspective. There's far less clutter.
