These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Breathtaking, beautiful and deadly

No, that title doesn't apply to me!

A quick post before I head off to work.

I got a little over 1/4 inch of rain last night! Yippeee skippeeeee!! It's not a lot, but my ground is wet, and hopefully it helped the fire fighters a bit. I know where the fire is still burning hot, it didn't matter, but perhaps it helped a bit to slow fresh burn. I hope so.

Here are a few photos, not mine, from the internet. They give some perspective, I think, to the events preceding the ones I took and posted here yesterday. 

Live "candles." My heart aches at this.

This next one just blows my mind. It is beautiful, a night photo of the fire, but it is also scary. Hold your breath ......

Adds perspective, doesn't it?

And I'm off to work, hi-ho, hi-ho!!


  1. That is really scary Lyn. I know I said that before but it really is. And sad. Love Di ♥

  2. Wow.....I will say that the last picture is just beautiful.

  3. Yes, it is both beautiful and scary. When they showed that on the morning news, it literally too my breath!

  4. Wow. I hope they can get them under control soon. This is very sad news.

  5. RET, yes, it is. Yesterday the containment was at 50%. I haven't heard, can't find a more recent estimate. I do hope it comes to an end soon. It seems no homes or lives are at risk now, but it needs to be finished.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
