A Time Of Fires

A  L  O  H  A  From Northern California
Marin Hills in Smoke

“Life is at its best 
when everything has 
fallen out of place, 
and you decide that 
you're going to fight 
to get them right- ” 
                  Thisuri Wanniarachchi





“Affliction is a good 
man's shining time.” 
     Edward Young
























“Sometimes you go through things 
that seem huge at the time, 
like a mysterious glowing cloud 
devouring your entire community. 
While they're happening, they 
feel like the only thing that matters
 and you can hardly imagine that
there's a world out there that might 
have anything else going on. 
And then the glow cloud moves on. 
And you move on. And 
the event is behind you. 
And you may find, as 
time passes, that you 
remember it less and less. 
Or absolutely not at
all, in my case.”  
          Cecil Baldwin

I hope there will be blessed rain and relief from those fires soon. We're all sisters and brothers in the Family of Man.

So sad...

There is a lot of hope in this post, but those words “Marin Hills in Smoke”...just sorrow.

Glad you are ok, Cloudia!

Northern California could use a few days of rain to help out those fire fighters.

On the positive side you'll get some good sunset pictures.

I have a feeling this will be remembered for always Cloudia. I would give anything to send over the rain that's falling outside my window now, California needs it much more than I do 😑
