Smoke gets in my eyes.

There is smoke all over the city from the fires down south. As I was driving home, there was actually ash falling on the car. There were few people walking downtown, and one woman caught my eye because she was wearing one of those surgical mask things. It is petrifying, and I can't begin to imagine how horrendous it is for people actually in Colorado Springs.

Needless to say, I'm on a lot of medication right now, due to becoming so quickly overwhelmed. So tonight (again), I keep this short: keep the people and animals impacted by the fires in Colorado in your thoughts, please. They need all the good vibes they can get.

Lots of love and rain.

...know when to run.

Crisis!
