how people re-invent themselves into some other kind of creature - just amazes me all the time and makes me wonder how long the charade can possibly last - isn't it hard to pretend to be something you're not? don't you forget "which" person you are on any particular day? just questions - don't expect answers to them but it truly can be confusing...
fires are really bad here - the valley is just a giant smoke bowl - a humid and stinking smoke bowl - the hurricane off of cabo is creating the overcast and the fires burning in yosemite, southern california and east of sacramento are just creating smoke filled skies - and this is just the beginning of the fire season here on the west coast and i think fires terrify me more than anything - just because they are so terribly final. have ridden out a number of earthquakes when we lived in the bay area - did the s.f. earthquake 40 floors up and swayed 15 feet each side of center but fires - they just terrify me beyond all else.
have added a few more favorite spots on the right side of this blog - and will continue to add more. long day - am punching thru 12 hours so far down here - but we are incredibly busy and the lists just grow continually longer and more complex. think i'll head home - see the doggers, pet the kitties and settle in for the evening...with the air on - it's over 100 out there right now.
have a good evening!
