Fire. Fire on the Mountain.
The ridge behind our house is on fire.
We are totally safe. I am in awe of the little, and LOUD!, airplanes and helicopters that keep zooming over our house and for the people who are parachuting out of them and disappearing into the smoke. It's an incredible thing to witness. Brave. Brave. Brave. It amazes me what people will do to help people. Quite an amazing species, I think.
As we drove away from our watch spot, it crossed my mind for one tenth of a second .... what if all this May 21 stuff is true? And you know what the answer was? It's been a great ride. I've been so lucky to be from such a fantastic family; meet such amazing friends and heros along the way; and create a little world I love. If we really are going out, I'm going out happy.
I don’t think we are going out. At all. But what I realized as I pondered “what if?” was this: I’m having a good ride! Overall, I’m happy and I love my little world! … and smoke jumpers are amazing souls.
I’m so glad my “ride” includes you — and the smoke jumpers.
To May 21, 2011 – and everyday for that matter – being a day of beautiful revelation,
What will May 22, 2011 be like for this guy? (photo credit: cnn.com)
