The Priorities - Taking A Look At Where I Stand
Can I say what I have to say in five minutes? Fire clears away blockages. It helps you focus really quickly on what is important and what you need to do at any giving time you are involved with fire. The reality of living in Southern California means you have to be be flexible, adaptable and understand that what you knew to be true five minutes ago doesn't mean squat.
For my geographically challenged friends who haven't called yet, I'm fine. I am currently no where near an fire situation. It has been really warm temperature-wize and the Santa Ana's winds have been blowing but no gusting around my area as of yet.
Someone I knew has died, non-fire related. He kept working, ignoring his health and respect for the time he had left. He ran out of his fixed amount of life. It has been rattling my cage.
Life is about the choices that you make and how you step up to changing what you don't like. So the (mental) image of the day is "make that move," or "do the right thing" or "take time to see what is around you."
You might not get a second chance.
