The fog comes on little cat feet - Carl Sandburg

The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking over
harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
- Carl Sandburg

The mountain remains unmoved at seeming defeat by the mist.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Fog sneaks in, "on little cat feet," as Carl Sandburg says. A gentle mist creeping across a quiet pond or softening the base of an imposing mountain can inspire one to brew a cup of hot chocolate, settle into a comfortable chair and contemplate life.

However, fog is dangerous for ships, and mind fog is even more hazardous to your mental health. Overly comfortable habits and unthinking repetition can allow mind fog to set in and cobwebs to form in the corners of your mind.

Is today the day to clean your mental gears and blow away the mind fog?
