I have a faint memory of living for social media.
What a sham. What a shame.
What is a best picture to take today? I see white ash all around my walkways from the burning fires in Northern California. However, that’s not sexy enough to get traffic from those who want to see the beauty of California and nobody has the gumption to photoshop that out – because it’s real.
The coastal, wild west, American California dream looks like devastation to me. Schools closing, towns gone, families misplaced, pain, suffering and smoke-filled skies with wildlife searching far from home to get water (yes, I currently have a family of raccoons living in my backyard).
The image of devastation is the tragedy of home, hearth, and heart.
In 2 days it will be Thanksgiving here is the USA and California looks more like a battleground than a Norman Rockwell painting. It arises deep feelings of angst, but here’s what I love: the Spirit and Heart of California can’t be beat and we will push on as though it’s our last breath.
Thanks for Reading,
