  63Things I Didn't Know I Loved
I didn't walk in the fog today
and I love walking in the fog when it is warm — at least for Wisconsin
in early December
I missed doing this because hordes came, events transpired, phones rang,
ornaments came out, the Christmas tree went up, lunch got made
And I forgot about the fog The way the prairie would look— gorgeously
colored grasses, mahogany red-brown waving masses
I forgot how when I walk in the fog my hair begins to curl at the ends and
my face feels bathed with fog's soft wash cloth.
