    Many years ago, I moved to Berkeley sight unseen. My mother flew out to California with me to help me get settled. It was the first visit for both of us.

    Every morning we got up, looked at the foggy sky and prepared ourselves for an overcast, dreary day. We were amused that the locals invariably said: “It’ll burn off.” And it always did.

    Our familiar, anemic rust-belt sun is not capable of burning anything off.

    I happily thought of all this as I looked at your pictures this morning. 🙂

    Beautiful images, Cheri.

    No. 3 is exquisite.

  3. Rain before seven, shine before eleven. Watching the early sun burn the fog is fascinating as the landscape unveils itself bit by bit in a chaste striptease.

      Let’s put your lovely word choice into a poem:

      Rain before seven.
      Shine before eleven.
      Watching the early sun
      Burn the fog; fascinating as the landscape
      Unveils itself,
      Bit by bit,
      In a chaste

      Marvelous, Paul!

    • Somehow my reply to your adatation of my comment got lost in cyberspace. I must give credit to my late father in law for for the 7/11 part. It seems he got it from an U.S. born relative of his, according to my wife. Is that what one calls “a work in progress”?
      The way you transformed it is wonderful. Wish I would have thought of it.

    Beautiful pictures and very nice comments. I have to catch up with all you have written Cherie.

      Hi MoR,

      I trust you have enjoyed a restful summer and time away from writing and reading and commenting.

      The picture you posted on your blog with that big cracked blue head in front of that pristine Italian countryside made me SMILE.

      I’ve missed you.
