  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

The sky bleeds closer to home than before

This is a picture of our sunset shrouded in smoke some 250 miles away from the wildfires burning in southern California. It was taken by Stefanie Henderson. There are some other awesome ones over the ocean here. Amidst such devastation comes such beauty.

Edited to add
I spoke too soon about my family being safe from the wildfires. I thought everyone had moved from the mountain areas long ago. I had forgotten about Mel. He lives in Running Springs near Lake Arrowhead. The last I had heard Running Springs was completely surrounded by fire, all 5100 residence had been evacuated and they didn’t know if the town would even survive. Mel is a bus driver. He was at work when the fire broke out. They wouldn’t let him back to his home, of course. All he has left are his car and uniform. Thankfully, he, unlike many others, is insured. He’ll be alright. It just brings everything really close to home.
