Always have a plan B. If plan A doesn’t work, go to plan B. Sheryl Sandberg wrote a book and speaks about this way of living. And believe me it works.
My journey to Los Angeles was incredibly challenging. I don’t need to go into details but everything that was planned had to be changed due to the fires. It isn’t a pretty picture down there. The Santa Ana winds are strong and feeding to the fire beast. This is the second fire I have experienced in the past few months, the first one in the Sonoma/ Santa Rosa area that was very recent.
Our climate is changing…changing as time passes. More fires, stronger hurricanes, more of everything.
More traffic. More people. More of more.
I just wish we could stop polluting our atmosphere. We, mankind are causing such destruction to our planet and if it wasn’t very obvious before, I believe we should all take a good look and see what is happening out there now.
Southern California hasn’t had any affecting rainfall, so just a spark set off recent fires that are not contained at this point. The ground has no water saturation so it is brutally dry.
It took 2 hours to get home from the airport that normally takes close to an hour. We are so crowded here, more homes built, more people…more people, more cars. More cars, more traffic. More traffic, more pollution. More pollution, more extreme weather patterns. No rain, fires. Hurricanes, floods, and so on.
It just doesn’t stop, does it?
So just to avoid the masses out there, I have decided to just be still and do my own thing today in my Marin. Venturing where the crowds and traffic are is not in my Plan A or B, I am truly easing into my life here in the country...I need a rest because sometimes, a small and momentary joy is all we can fight for.
