  • Coastal fog is thick and dreary this morning, as if the sky is drooling pain. The sun, which replenishes happiness each day, is steadfastly working through the smother of clouds. Thank God I've been through this cycle of meteorology before; I know not to fret or rage or wade in to join the sorrow. I will walk - and walk tall with a smile in the grace of knowing that I am. I will be the sun.
