The savannah looks more like a moor this morning.

A gentle fog has blanketed the lowlands and as I watch it moves higher into our neighborhood.

As I noted earlier, it follows a rainy, drizzly, wet weekend.

The other evening, SWMBO was experimenting with her new light-up drink coaster and placed her crystal ball on it.

No, she's not a gypsy fortune teller though she might be able to make a fair living at it with this and her vivid imagination.

The BRD said it best when I emailed her the photo above.

"A galaxy you could hold in your hands."

Speaking of which, we watched the movie "Miles Ahead" from Netflix last night.

It's the story of a period in the life of the trumpeter Miles Davis during which he was not performing.

The film is the product of the actor Don Cheadle, who wrote, directed, produced and starred as the troubled and drug addicted Davis.

Cheadle gives a sterling performance though the movie is not for the faint of heart who might be troubled by language, drug abuse and violence or badly affected by Davis' sometimes discordant music.

I enjoyed it, SWMBO not so much.

Aha!  The fog has lifted.

A very happy New Year to you and yours, Bruce-on-the-loose!

Oh I did enjoy 'here comes the sun', thanks for that!

Happy New Year to you and yours Cat!

Lots of fun ahead with that coaster! Happy New Year!

I haven't heard of that movie, and I don't have Netflix...but I love Don Cheadle.

Cheadle was brilliant in that film. As I noted in an earlier post friends who were apart of the jazz scene, who knew Miles, said they wished the film would have focused on more of his life and his musical genius.

Your coaster and globe are good diversions for a foggy day.

Cool crystal ball! I haven't seen the film yet.

Fog can be everywhere: in a drink, in the head, outside... where else?

I can never hear that song enough. Happy New Year to you and SWMBO.

It's always nice when the fog lifts. Not sure when that's gonna happen in Washington, though! If ever.
