Day 179:  What really matters?

Day 179.

Perhaps it’s the delirium of fever or that I’m premenstrual, or a combo of both, but I can’t stop thinking about these crazy wildfires which in turn is making me think about everyone I love and care about.  It’s making me quite sentimental and weepy.  I just heard that two old friends in the Denver area are safe.  That’s a relief.  Rain dancing will be my exercise for the day.

Fighting fires in 2009 

I went through something similar but on a smaller scale back in 2009 when the foothills by my house were on fire.  I actually had to fly home early from the play I was doing in NYC to potentially evacuate—I was packed and ready with birth certificates and insurance information at the ready but I never had to leave.  It was scary and it was crazy.  Thank god for understudies.  And firefighters.

It has me thinking about what really matters in life.  People.  Family.  Friends.  Being alive and healthy.  Freedom.  Creating.  Love.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…and remember what matters.
