“Me and my horse Spirit decided to rest for a while. The fog kept making our climb towards the village harder. At the same time the world seemed different, a strange beauty was added to our surroundings with nature’s mysterious veil. We continued to ascend the mountain…”

No I am not writing a novel, I just went for a refreshing trip to the Greek mountains where I was entranced by this beautiful fog. Now bear with me if you are from the United Kingdom or other Northern climates but it is something that I miss in my everyday life and I find absolutely lovely and thought-provoking.

A Horse in the fog

And what an existing beauty I found in the middle of nowhere, this lovely horse! I hope you are fine my friend. Now I have to get back to my computer button pushing and you to your plant munching and the other horse-tasks that you have. Live long and prosper.

All this fog talk makes me want to cuddle with my boy Batman and watch some classic fog-horror films like John Carpenter’s “The Fog” or Stephen King/Frank Darabont’s “The Mist”.

Fog Horror

I always envied the job of the protagonist in “The Fog”, being a small town radio-DJ on the top of a lighthouse…(minus the leper-zombies of course!). “The Mist” has in my opinion the most unexpected film ending in the history of film endings. So, cuddle up and Fog On!
