Or what you don't want to see when you are driving home from work.
I stopped at the end of the street to take a photo of the fire and another car stopped ahead of me. When I got out of my car, I heard that he very thoughtfully provided the soundtrack for a video. Who would think to provide theme music to a fire? Apparently he did. So, we have "Fire on the Mountain" by Grateful Dead. Sheesh.
Fortunately, we have rain tonight. Unusual. Happy. Fortuitous. The fire is gone. The highway is reopened.
Do you know that I was a "deadhead" before there were "deadheads?" I loved the Grateful Dead. I went to all of their concerts in the midwest back in the 1960s. We would travel for hundreds of miles to see them. Funny, because back then their appeal (to me anyway) was that they were relatively quiet and peaceful. Their concerts were nice and there was no violence or scariness there. Funny how things can change in 20 or 30 or 40 or now 50 years. I guess if you went now it would be a geriatric concert. I have absolutely no interest in living in the past...
Tomorrow I will run 7 miles. Happily. Gratefully.
Today I got a text from a sponsee. "sorry I haven't called....bla bla bla" why does that annoy me? Like I have been sitting here waiting for her to call. She should apologize to herself for not availing herself of a sponsor. I can't imagine why she would apologize to ME. If she doesn't want to call me, perhaps she should find someone she WANTS to call. I just don't understand. Truly I don't.
OK. Going to bed. Happy I don't have to worry about an evacuation. Grateful for too many things to list right now because I am too tired.
The Grace of God is immense.
