Had we been asleep while the long days of summer slowly passed, waking up in late October? Or had fall come early? Neither explained the fog, of course, but some special combination of atmospheric conditions. A kind of unmoved mover. By late morning, all was clear and now at 4:00 pm, the sky is back to its customary boiling blue, puffy clouds lazily making their way to destinations unknown.
The morning gloom felt fitting, like a friend mourning in sympathy. Today is the eighth anniversary of my brother's passing. The triteness of the phrase how time flies doesn't make the sentiment less true or blunt the sting of the loss.
