Sunrise Through A Lazy Fog........

In Indiana, morning fogs like this are a sure sign that Autumn will soon be peeking around the corner. DH was leaving for work early the other day and as I was opening the garage door for him, I was greeted with this amazing sight; fog so very thick, hanging in an elevated blanket and the sun reflecting through it and off it!
I promptly ran into the studio, nightclothes flying, house shoes flopping, grabbed the camera and burned off several shots. In the moments I was out there, the sun was slowly rising, making each picture distinctly different. Some had lens flare, some didn't, but all were beautiful in their own way. It was tough to pick ONE for the blog......and I figured posting all of them would insure you that I am OCD. (ahem) I prefer to think that I was just trying to preserve each moment of a spectacular event, a gift from the universe. Sounds better that way, yes?
With the fungus popping up in the yard and leaves falling from trees, I am wondering if we will have a colorful Fall or if the rains will move in and end this dry Summer with wet and dreary days. No matter; I have work piled up to do. Yesterday my banner sewing turned into a surprise visit from a friend, and thus my day was spent not working but talking, reminiscing and e-mailing.
That's okay.
The thing I need to teach myself is there are only so many hours in a day, and so many times I get the chance to laugh with lifelong friends. The work will be done, the house can wait, dinner is always fixed for hubby.............everything moves on.
And every morning that I can, I check for sights like this one, to remind myself what a marvel this great globe is and what a small and infinitesimal part I play. Yes, I record events, make art, decorate sanctuaries with banners, but ultimately, a sunrise like this one puts it all in perspective.
I am content with being *small*.
And pleased that I get to share something this *big*.
I hope your day is brilliant!

Pax.

Thanks Marilyn......I'm working on banners today, so hopefully while I'm sewing, I'll have enough good pics to keep the blog up daily!

XXOO!!!

yoborobo said...

Anne - should I come over with a rock yet? LOL!!! xo

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

OH YES!!!!!
PLEASE!!!!
A very very LARGE, JAGGED one! (and a big cup of coffee too please...)
I have, so far, cussed a blue streak trying to find the part I needed in crappy pictures for the John Deere deck, but finally figured it out myself (Grrrrrrrrrlllll-Power!) went to the farm store and found said parts, squatted in the dirty garage corner to pull the deck and fix it, fed and watered the 'Keets while little blue Demon-bird tried to run me out of his cage and now in the *sanctity* of the studio, cutting out candle lames from a kickin' gold holographic fabric.
I definitely need the rock!
How 'bout you??? ;) LOL!!!!


XXOO!!

Leslie said...

Love the pic. Fog always gives such interesting effects.

Glad the John Deere is fixed, YEAH for Grrrl Power!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Leslie, you and I could take on the world, and kick it's ass!!!! LOL!!!
But my leg has to get well first, okay? ;)
And yes, I love the fog, except when I have to drive in it. We have it a lot out here in the country---sometimes it is like breathing in water it is so thick!

XXOO!!!

HAHAHA - okay 2 jagged rocks, one for me and one for you. I just got back from a "Middle School Orientation", which I have been to THREE times before, and now I am drinking a nice glass of wine. Instead of working on about 10 things that need doing.

I'll go rock shopping in the garden. Any favorite colors? :) xox

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I'd like a nice sharp slab of meteorite please....basic black!
Well, I can't even comment on what you went through (no kids) but after spending an hour last evening trying to get the fusible off my TEFLON SHEET, maybe I should have joined you in that glass of wine! Some of the banner fabric is sheer and the fusible goes right through, which makes me question how much will be there when I go to iron it on......that very unsettling feeling...you know?
And I have a ton to do, but I'm going out to lunch today, so that means I'm taking the morning off for a nice bath, the hair, nails, etc.
Which will be ruined when I, once again, start scraping fusible off the teflon sheet.... >:(

XXOO from wildwoman......

THis could not have been a more perfect picture to sit and have my coffee with. Today is certainly overcast isn't it? But I welcome days like this. There is something so quiet & moody about them. I usually just let my spirit talk to me on days such as these.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

These are good studio days, thinking days, decision making days--and one I would rather stay IN but have commitments OUT. Meeting with a lady who is a generous sponsor to the local food bank, and also doing some networking for other poverty-related causes.
So out I go!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you're feeling okay!

XXOO!!!

Anne
