Susan Blanda

Taking a break from the worries of the last few days with the local fire, to drink in some fresh air down by the water. This photo was taken a few months back, but it reminds me of the storm of worry that many Californians have faced recently during the fires. There is a helpless feeling and intense fear that will eat you alive unless you find something to center yourself. For me that center is always gratitude. And in the spirit of of deep hope, I send prayers to those in Northern California who are still braving the uncontrollable, destructive fires. ❀️

While adventuring in LaQuinta, Ca a few weeks ago, we fell upon an abandoned casita and wandered through its tiny living quarters. The faded, tattered wallpaper still reflected the subtle beauty of youth. And a lone chair sat in the shadows, reminding us to sing our songs and savor the the small blessings of each day. #travel #LaQuinta #jj_forum_2097
