  2. Fog has a real power to it. It lends mystery and danger to a story or image. It also has a way of lulling you into a catatonic state. I can drive in rain, sleet, snow, hurricanes, tornados and anything else Mother Nature throws at my but fog…fog turns me into a zombie behind the wheel. It really freaks me out.

      The fog can be a type of ganzfeld effect – from German for “complete field” and it is a form of perceptual deprivation. It is a phenomenon of perception caused by exposure to an unstructured, uniform stimulation field. The effect is the result of the brain amplifying neural noise in order to look for the missing visual signals. We end up imposing order and form,and it can produce a state of lucid dreaming. In this case, we are dreaming while awake. Looking out at endless water surface and sky can produce the same situation – explains phantom boat sightings and mysterious lost islands that can never be relocated/reached.

      One March Break we headed down Friday evening to get to Toronto to make a Saturday flight. There was lots of snow, but very mild weather. The drizzle turned into a white haze that just blended with the heaps of snow and ice encrusted rock cuts. A crazy ride, I was wound tighter than a Syrian twine ball by the time we hit T.O. . 😀
