It has been a while since I have posted any musings. I find when my external world becomes full, I need to take more quiet to balance my internal world. For me, that translates to less time on social media. Reliably inconsistent would describe my way of showing up. However, I am ok with my unreliability ;)
Right now I am moved to speak about the shocking situation of fires burning in our province. 155 of them burning today, with 3000 courageous firefighters attending. Thousands of people and animals displaced, homes lost, wild creatures perishing. Heartbreaking, and staggering in size, with no end in sight to the weather conditions.
For me, the heaviness of the tragedy hovers in the background of daily life as I watch the smokey haze drift over the coastal mountains, washing the sunset with orange.
One thing that helps me is writing, and I am sharing an article I wrote at another time of great fires that was published in the Elephant Journal magazine.
