The fire that was so close is moving away but it is still far from being contained. Over 65,000 acres and over two hundred homes and outbuildings have been lost. Animals have died or have been displaced. There are so many people that will be starting over, turning to a new page in their lives. It is times like this that we realize that nothing stays the same and life is always changing. I am filled with sadness but am hopeful that there will be new beginnings and positive life changes in time. The sky was dark and filled with smoke and ash but no fire in the valley today. The grey sky was a constant reminder of the struggle that was going on for others. I painted today. Painting is a way for me to work through the feelings harboring inside my mind. Then a small but powerful miracle came with a sprinkling of rain that I hope cooled the fire area, giving moisture to the air. Take care.
