I left her inside the house because of the heat outside and gave her a nice walk around sunset and another at 11PM...

Thursday 18- 104/80 degrees
Because of all the smoke in the air and the heat I thought it best we stay in the house the rest of the day.
This is what the Sun looks like over my house right now. I can look directly at it through the smoke from the mountains. Ash is beginning to fall around me from the fire. The temperature should be 100 degrees now but it's only 78 degrees. My solar panels are just keeping up with my refrigerator, the only time this happens is when there is snow covering them or heavy smoke:

My CERT team got called to support the firefighters up near the fire in Pioneertown, So I won't be around today or even maybe tomorrow...


* I will write about the Lake Fire separately...

***** Stuff I Wrote this Month******

I enjoy writing... it flows out of my brain into my fingers as they fall upon the keyboard to gather into some kind of framework like building a house.
First you need the framework.
Then you add the plumbing, put electrical wiring in the walls and then paint it. This is called editing...
Don't care much for editing...
But you wouldn't want to live in a house with only the framework completed.
Once you have it all built you must go over it again and again until making sure everything works correctly and the paint dries smoothly. Once all this is done it is ready for others to move into. I don't get writer's block. I don't do this for fame or money. I would rather call myself a storyteller than a writer because that's who I am.

Write what you want to say not for what you think other people want to hear... unless you're stuck writing obituaries.

The only thing that set us apart from our biological selves is our intellect and it is the only thing that’s going to save us from ourselves.

I am and always will be a night person. Even as a young child I would stay up late into the night in my bed staring at the room's ceiling lost in thought thinking of adventures and wondering about the world and my place in it. Then abruptly being awoken at 6:30am in the early morning having to get ready for school... and they wondered why I always fell asleep during class. Tis a great folly to think one size fits all.
~RD

Time is lost to those who wait
so do it now before it's too late
lost in thought as time ticks away
slipping into darkness on our finale day
all the stuff of life we let pass us by
words to friends and family left unspoken
at our loss their hearts now be broken
no more chance to play at having fun
a tinge of guilt for creativity left undone
we pray we wish for just one more day
then into the night we quietly fade away....
~RD
