 Thank you ALL for the stream of loving kindness sent our way.
Tomorrow is another hot day with very low humidity.


Many of you have asked how we are. We experience hope – on Saturday – only a few days ago
to find the fire was invigorated on Sunday. This was discouraging as we were planning
on going home soon to an undamaged home. Now the outcome remains unknown.

We are staying in a spacious home of a friend who is currently out of town.
We are well cared for and feel badly for those caged in a hotel room.

We know we can handle whatever comes our way – even if we lose our home,
while we continue to hope that this will not be the case.

We remain resilient for the most part, with a few minutes of feeling vulnerable and sad.

“ALL is well!”
