The hills were now but a dim, ill-defined blur
Sometimes we rose to great heights, where the air was chill and the world below but a blur
of dim outlines; but always the jo-oos stuck behind us.
Everything was quite a blur
to him up to the time that he stood on the threshold of his own home.
He suffered himself, even, to think of that faint blur
upon the horizon, the breath of the spicy winds, the strange home perfumes of the bay, as he drew nearer and nearer to the outstretched arms of his country.
But, he got to an arched window in the tower, breast high, and holding tight, looked down upon the house-tops, on the smoking chimneys, on the blur
and blotch of lights (towards the place where Meg was wondering where he was and calling to him perhaps), all kneaded up together in a leaven of mist and darkness.
It is imperative that now at once, while these stupendous events are still clear in my mind, I should set them down with that exactness of detail which time may blur
And further, these dream trees were not a mere blur

Had he had the eyes of a man, nearly two yards higher than his own from the deck, and had they been the trained eyes of a man, sailor- man at that, Jerry could have seen the low blur
of Ysabel to the north and the blur
of Florida to the south, ever taking on definiteness of detail as the Arangi sagged close-hauled, with a good full, port-tacked to the south-east trade.
San Francisco lay like a blur
of smoke upon her heights.
On the left the low-lying land stretched in a dim haze, rising here and there into a darker blur
which marked the higher capes and headlands.
Right ahead a dark blur
upon the water showed where the Aurora lay, and the swirl of white foam behind her spoke of the pace at which she was going.
As they lifted on the smooth crest of a wave, Duncan turned to look where the Samoset made a vague blur
in the darkness.
The light blur
of smoke, from an invisible steamer, faded on the great clearness of the horizon like the mist of a breath on a mirror; and, inshore, the white sails of a coaster, with the appearance of disentangling themselves slowly from under the branches, floated clear of the foliage of the trees.
The jungle was so far away that he could see only a dim, green blur
below him, but just above and quite close was the sun.
You may have noticed a sort of blur
extending all across the picture.
