Hayden

It was a pretty nice view … and then Hayden walked into it, and it became spectacular. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hot, dry, windy conditions (you know … same ol’, same ol’ … ) have resulted in more – and more visible – activity from the 416 and Burro fires. Air quality near the fires is pretty bad, according to personal accounts and this Durango Herald article.

Many thanks to the many firefighters on the job in our area!

Words that do NOT go together = “Denver” and “105 degrees.” And yet … yesterday, Denver tied its all-time record for hottest day ever, set in 2012. Ouch.

The temp reached only 101 (that I saw) in Disappointment Valley yesterday.

The good news is that when temps drop to the 90s in the evenings, it feels downright balmy after the furnace has been stoked all day long.

Words that DO go together = Kwana + haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaandsome!

Strawberry Moon

This month’s full moon is the Strawberry Moon.

Strawberry Moon

The heat was pretty intense yesterday (and today is supposed to be worse?). It varied between 100 … 97 … 108 … And those were just when I was looking.

We’d be grateful for some clouds. … ๐Ÿ™‚

Sundance

It would be nice to have some more of those clouds sheltering Sundance in this photo. The weather folks say we’re going to top 100 degrees today.

Hot. Dry. Windy.





Because we all need love …

Temple at sunset

To be humble, to be kind; it is the giving of the peace in your mind.
To a stranger, to a friend; to give in such a way that has no end.

We are love, we are one; we are how we treat each other when the day is done. We are peace, we are war; we are how we treat each other and nothing more.

To be bold, to be brave; it is a thinking that the heart can still be saved.
And the darkness can come quick; the danger’s in the anger and in the hanging on to it.

We are love, we are one; we are how we treat each other when the day is done. We are peace, we are war; we are how we treat each other and nothing more.

And tell me what it is that you see; a world that’s full of endless possibility.
And heroes don’t look like they used to, they look like you do.

We are love, we are one; we are how we treat each other when the day is done. We are peace, we are war; we are how we treat each other and nothing more. We are how we treat each other and nothing more; we are how we treat each other… ๐Ÿ™‚
