no haiku today....

  I had to skip my haiku this week.  I promise to be back on track next week.  I spent all of last night eyes glued to the television set watching the fire in San Bruno.  I work in San Bruno- about 6 blocks from the fire.  I was overwhelmed thinking about the houses that I pass by on Sneath and Skyline- and of the people impacted by the tragedy.  Luckily, all of my family, friends, and clients are okay.
  I have been a little in my own head this past week.  My daughter started preschool - which she absolutely loved- and my son began daycare -which neither he nor I loved at all.  The place is wonderful and the people are caring and loving.  I know he is in good hands... I just am sad that they aren't mine.  He is such a little thing that always wants his mommy.  Anyway, it was all feeling pretty tragic... until the fire happened and  shook me out of my space of feeling sorry for myself.  My plans for this weekend include donating a huge stash of baby clothes to the red cross for the victims of the fire.  The fact that they are short on toddler clothes and infant clothes breaks my heart.
   Life is tricky... and things could always be worse. 
I am not really sure if that makes me feel all that much better.

I learned about it on the news. This was so sad and tragic. While I am relieved that you, your family and friends are fine - my heart goes out to those who perished and have lost their homes. Theresa

hola mi amor....
oh this letting go and letting in...
the wheel of life taking us sometimes willingly, other times by storm.
may love reign, compassion guide. may the goodness in each one of us prevail.
