Finding Peace in the Midst of Fire

You'd never know by this picture that a good portion of San Diego was on fire this day (although you can see a bit of smoky haze in the distance).

It may be a little reminder that we can always find mental solitude in the midst of the fire. Where it's a chaotic schedule, negative thoughts, tragedies, or a series of unfortunate events causing fires in your life, I hope you are able to find solace some how, some way.

It was nice to stop time for just a little bit by walking on the beach, taking in the misty sea spray, and forgetting for an instant about those raging fires.

P.S. San Diego is doing better, by the way. Fires can always be put out, no matter how destructive and huge they seem.

  1. I'm glad the fires are gone by now (as far as I can tell) but I knew firefighters that went down from here and even Bakersfield to help out. :( We smelled them and saw the smoke all the way in Irvine. :(

    1. Yeah, it was pretty bad! But surprisingly not as bad as the 2003 and 2007 fires! Eek.
