Eight thousand dry lightning strikes has set California on fire. The erratic winds sending embers in flight, the heat wave fueling the fires, the smoke stealing the sun, the daisies curling into a fist, are a hell we cannot escape. The smoke permeates inside and out, making us prisoners in our home's, filling our lung's with second hand smoke, summer has become silent. Most importantly the brave firefighters risking their lives, while the people valiantly try to save their dreams, all these moments show the power of nature, of those who will chose to survive, the patience to endure or to simply pray.
At one time California has had 1043 fires that were active. I am not in a fire danger zone but how can the smoke not effect my lungs after more than a week. It's very hard to think about much else when you have evacuated family members, simply waiting. The National Guard is here to help but the visibility is making it tough to fight the fire from the air. Keep California in your thoughts and prayers.
