sunday night

I thought I had something to say but I guess I was mistaken.

It may have been something about the coat rack falling off the wall for the third time in as many months.

There is no difference between the time the rack fell down twice before and the time it fell down today.

I could be wrong, though.

Instead of not posting anything, however, I wrote this.

We can blame Borges for this.

It is quite foggy out now.

Or is it mist. It may be mist. I’m not sure I know the difference.

    • Thanks, Sigrun. Which do you see more of there, fog or mist? I associate mist with moors and meadows, whereas I associate fog with water. To me, mist has a more romantic connotation. Perhaps that has something to do with my recent fascination with its metaphorical significance, although not everything to do with it.

      • I wanted to check the difference between the two concepts and found the clever little definition “The only difference between mist and fog is visibility” (which I think sounds almost poetic) here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mist

        On a personal level I agree with you, fog is in a way heavier than mist (it might be the o compared to the i?) Fog gives me associations to big boats, slow but unable to turn, and foghorn – the kind of sound you feel in your guts.
