Thoughts while driving home from Matins in the fog

by Andrea Elizabeth

What if the thick, dense flog pushed all of the pollution down onto the ground? Isn’t it better for the pollution to be on the ground than in the air, killing the high altitude trees and obscuring beautiful views? But it could kill the vegetation in the low lying areas. Maybe not if it rained. But then it, or at least most of it as there will probably remain trace elements of evidence, would get into the streams and hurt the fish and water-life. I wonder if it could be diluted to sufficient amounts that would render it unharmful in the ocean. This could be since all of the elements existed before they were combined into pollution anyway. Pollution isn’t totally corrupt. This is how water is cleansing. It puts things back into perspective.
