just thought this was perfect


just thought this summed it up. this little petunia covered in ash. I can hear sirens as I type this, it may be just the highway patrol after a person with expired tags, but it makes you tense no matter. your heart skips a beat. after the 2003 fires I would freak out if I smelled smoke- the smell of a BBQ would send my kids into tears. our games of "I spy" while traveling in the car would go like this:
Hallie: I spy something black
Me: the rock?
Hallie: Nope
Davi: the dirt?
Me: the call box?
Hallie: Nope...the tree!!
Davi: My turn!! I spy something dark gray
Me: the gaurd rail?
Hallie: the fence?
Davi : No to both!
and so it would go on

that picture is just so sad really. It makes my heart ache for all of the people affected.

Now your I-Spy game. Well, that just made me giggle. I can so see that. :)
