Brain Fog

textured with 'mary'

The fog formed suddenly, creating a vacuum that sucked the air from beneath her.  Always one for proper etiquette he'd made sure to bring a gift . . . a clouding of consciousness that was bestowed upon her in a quixotic gesture. 

Voluminous shadows marred her vision.  Disorientated she stumbled and struggled to regain her composure.  It was hard to concentrate and she found herself scrambling to make sense of it all.  Rubbing her head with both hands she tried to remember if this was a memory or simply the everyday as though images from some forgotten dream.

As the fog languished she wondered whether this soupy sludge would ever dissipate, but deep down she knew . . . . . the brain . . . . .that was his favorite resting place.

Linking up with Texture Tuesday.

  3. As one who gets a lot of brain fog from my sleeping disorder, this resonates with me all too well unfortunately...top if off with menopause and hot flashes and yes you get thick soupy sludge!! (sometimes more like quicksand)

  6. It is amazing to me how evocative your images are - how you create something completely different from the source material. Beautiful texture processing.

  8. Such a complex image, and I love the story details, the "quixotic gesture".

    1. I found the word quixotic when I was trying to search for an alternative to what I had. . . it was a new one for me and I loved it.

  9. Your creation reminds me of a tangled mass of undergrowth in winter. Out of the mist I would expect to see a little sparrow pop out, and add a bit of bright color and a calming little song to encourage my day :^)
