In a Fog, Seeing Clearly
There's something about getting out of the city that somehow opens my eyes to the beauty of the landscape. I was driving out to Ayers Creek Farm in Gaston the other day and, as I passed through Hillsboro, a dense fog settled over the fields, muting the colors and diffusing the light. The fog and low clouds remained throughout the day, and when I got back to town I heard that it had been a beautiful, sunny day in the city. And you know what? I wasn't disappointed to have missed it at all.
