Overpowering – three summers out of the four years we have lived here, big fires have been burning around us. It’s not earth shattering anymore, but when getting up in the morning and I smell smoke (a smaller fire 8 miles from us), my system is on alert. I’m not afraid, but vigilant.
For this post I initially had the idea of shadows being so strong that they’re overpowering. A scene from one of my painting places at Yosemite Nat. Park.
For you who do not live here – In California, 3 1/2 hrs. to the North the Carr fire is burning (has already asked 12 lives) , and 3 1/2 hrs. South East of us in the area of the W-Entrance of Yosemite Nat. Park a fire has been burning, which meant hundreds of vacationers had to be evacuated. We live in between these two, and sometimes can smell the smoke (and ashes appear on the car) of either one of them, but too far to be a danger to us.
