Yesterday morning as I was driving to work, I had to be extra cautious as a thick fog had enveloped the area.  As the road continued to curve, I came upon a section where I knew from previous experience that the trees divided, allowing a brief but beautiful glimpse into the river valley below.  And this got me to thinking – if I had never driven this road before in other conditions, I would miss seeing what lies beyond the fog and mist and never get to experience all the beauty that otherwise is offered.

And the worst thought of all – what else have I missed in my life due to “fog”? ...

Kim - The framing experience was a new one for me.  :)  I wasn't able to do any matting, because I forgot that I had to calculate in extra room for the matting, photo and frame, and instead bought frames the same size as the photos.  Next time I'll be better prepared.  But it's all part of the learning process!

We miss so much in our foggy state, as there are so many things that fight for attention: families, friend, money, careers. You make a great point to focus and pay attention to all the good right in front of us!

I enjoyed the photos of your gallery showing. My favorite photo is the one at the very top of your post. Just lovely! How did your framing experience go? Sorry I didn't see your question on framing tips. I used to work for a great photographer in NH, and one of my duties was to help fill in for framing during the Christmas season.

I'm always amazed when I sit in the passenger's seat how many "new" things I see on a path I've driven hundreds of times. 

Getting a coach, reading, and being around children all open our eyes to see the world around us in new perspectives. 

Thanks for the post, and let us know how your first showing went!

What a very nice article you have here Lesley. Most of us are so in a hurry that we do not keep track of the time. So foolish of us to neglect all the wonderful things that God gave us. Nice to take time to appreciate everything before it's gone.

Thank you! It's an area I plan to be more conscious of for sure.

Lesley that was beautifully insightful - so very true.  Our perception of people or circumstances is our reality - but if our perception is "foggy" for whatever reason - we are not seeing clearly or truly!  Great post.
