A friend very generously offered her beach house to me - so I stayed there for the past three days. My friend and her husband had a houseful of evacuees with them at their other home, so I won the jackpot by getting to use their beach house. (Thank you Peggy! You're amazing!) Staying at their beach house was on my list of things I wanted to do - interesting way to manifest that one, huh? It was wonderful there - peaceful and smoke-free (until the smoke from the Los Angeles fires found its way up to the beach house.) Oh well, I consider myself lucky to have had the luxury. The smoke eventually cleared. (Ah, the power of strong intention. I wasn't going to tolerate smoke following me around like that. I had just left that "party.")
Some of my friends lost their homes in this fire, many of my friends' homes came close but were spared. I feel blessed to have a home to come home to - smoke-filled but still standing. My heart goes out to all the people who have lost their homes, and to those who have gone through the ordeal of having to evacuate. It's quite an adventure. I've been one of the fortunate ones. I hope (know) that good comes from all of it - for everyone touched in any way by the experience. I know how resilient people can be.
Thank you again for all the prayers and good visions you sent my way. And thanks for envisioning some rain for these areas! Wouldn't it be fun to create some "magic"?
