Morning Light

Soft snow-white puffs float
among the gleam, no filter
Soon a clear blue view

(This was a welcomed surprise after smoke-filled air and sky for the last month. But the fires still burn and we continue to hold all of the fire victims in our hearts.) πŸ’“πŸ’“

    Wonderful words to read this AM!! As you note, there is a lot going on right now and the last thing we need is wildfires…but your encouragement to always smile at warm, cloud-filled blue skies is a welcome one! Bravo Lauren (as always)!! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much, Jill. By the way, I finished “A Home for Her Daughter” and loved it – such a beautiful and tender romance with some real-life issues to deal with. Thanks for sharing your talents. πŸ’•

    1. Thanks so much, John. We shouldn’t complain because we’re not in the fire’s path, but it is nice to breathe fresh air again. One thing we take for granted. Are you affected by Tropical Storm Beta? Hope you stay safe!

        how true, so much taken for grated – I was struck by the weather commentator when he was speaking of the cleaning air and brushed aside where it was going since I was going to Reno. We are so blessed!

      2. It’s so nice to see you “here” Judie, and yes, we are blessed. Let’s hope for a calm September. The Santa Cruz fire (CZU) is now 100% contained and that’s wonderful! Safe travels to Reno, my friend. xoxo

    1. Thanks, Ian. It’s really great to see blue skies again, but sad to hear the fires are still burning. So difficult for the firefighters to contain. I’m praying for a calmer September…

    1. Thanks so much, Ian. With the entire west coast burning, it was a little unsettling. And we can’t help but wonder what the future holds for this side of the country. We’re ready to move out of CA. πŸ™‚ But can’t do it just yet. So, one day at a time…hope you’re doing well, my friend…

      1. Not doing well here, looking forward to moving out of our state, seems we are seeing the emergence of a Dictator and Police state with the laws on the virus being implemented.

    1. I’m so glad you thought so, Marina. This sunrise was such a treat! The air is fresher, the sky is blue, life feels a little better. But we still worry about those in the heart of all the fires…it’s hard not to worry or let it all get to you, you know what I mean? Anyway, big hugs to you, dear friend…xoxoxoxoxoxo

      1. I know exactly what you mean, which is all the more important that beauty is shared (I know you know what I mean!)
        More hugs your way! πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ€—

  2. Lauren, I’m glad the air has cleared there finally. Sad to hear the fires still burn though. Have you gotten any rain there at all? (Conditions have improved here too, thanks to plenty of rain this last week.)
    Hugs πŸ€—πŸ’“

    1. Hi Betty, it’s been such a nice change and I’m sure you feel the same way. Glad you got some rain. I know the Santa Cruz fire was contained 100%, but I don’t know about the others now. No rain for us yet. In fact, today and tomorrow are supposed to be super hot again with gusty winds. So another red flag warning is in effect until tomorrow morning. I pray no new fires start. Otherwise, I’ve always loved the fall season. πŸ₯Ί Hugs to you! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

      1. Hope you do get some rain soon, Lauren. I heard this morning there was another big new fire? Didn’t hear where it was though. Here it is almost October — doesn’t seem we should still be having to worry about fires.
        Take good care! β™₯️xx

      2. There are 3 new fires north of us in Napa and Sonoma valleys and those residents have been through so many since 2017. It’s so sad. I know what you mean about October just around the corner. Tough year in many ways. I don’t think rain will come for a while. One day at a time. Hugs πŸ€— πŸ’–πŸŒΌ

    1. Thanks so much, Debby. Well, there are 3 new fires an hour north of us. So, it’s a little hazy, but not super bad. Just so awful for the residents who have gone through this before. 😦 Hugs πŸ’•
