It smells like fish again.

The world has had an eerie glow this week. Even when the sun is shining and the day is bright, the sky is thick with haze and is eerily orange. The sidewalk, usually such a cool grey is almost a sepia tone.

Tonight when I left work, I smelled that old familiar smell, that cool, foggy, unmistakable sea salt and fish smell of the ocean. This isn't particularly surprising...I work less than a mile from the harbor and the beach. But it's the first time in a week that I've been able to smell it. And it makes me feel better... here's hoping it helps to end the fires.
