After nearly a week of summer-like temperatures, our marine layer returned on Tuesday morning, enveloping the garden in fog. As is usually the case with fog, it seemed as though sounds were muted, which an online search reassured me isn't a figment of my imagination. The harbor below us usually produces a steady hum, punctuated with periodic booms. We've become so used to that hum we're hardly aware of it consciously - until it stops. It may be that activity in the harbor stops or slows in response to dense fog but it may also be that my attention, visual and auditory, shifts to the space immediately surrounding me, no longer tracking activity I can't visually pinpoint.
Here's a spin around my garden in the fog with the sound (and narration) turned off.
Enjoy a peaceful day, with any annoying chatter turned off.
