What does the fog want to show us?

“What does the fog want to show us?”
Fog is coy.  He reveals what he wants to reveal.  Yes, as you walk about, he may show a barnacle encrusted rock with soft waves nuzzling; that moment of sunrise sky shot with rose; the farm house garden with lilacs over a split-rail fence – these he reveals to tease…
Did you know though, Fog humbly yearns to reveal a true glimpse of his sensitive, penetrating self.  If you could but sense the tenderness with which he veils and protects; or dance with his swirls about you as you pass by the cedars; then experience the burst of elation with which he liberates all to the sun – then you would approach an understanding of Fog’s game, that ‘je ne sais quoi’*  which makes him so personal…
