When the fog rolls in it’s hard to recognize the contours of the landscape around us. Waving our arms to clear the air doesn’t have much effect, except to get a little upper body exercise. Fogged in, is a way of saying that we have to wait for clearing before being able to resume our normal activities. Sometimes this inability to see very far can go on for days, weeks, or even years. There is comfort, however, in knowing that we are not alone in the fog and that it will gradually be swept away, eventually replaced by a clarity never before imagined or experienced.
