A bit of time and space
I've posted almost every day for two and a half years, and in so doing have made some lovely friends. On behalf of my faithful visitors who come regularly to B&B, I must tell you that the blog will be on hiatus for a time. I am dealing with an unexpected health problem that is consuming much time and energy.
I miss my little blog rituals more than I can say, the most pleasurable being my visits to your corners of the world. Eventually, I hope to resume posting and sharing.
Thank you for everything - your comments, your visits, your friendship, the glimpses you offer me into your own lives. My own life is so enriched by these encounters.

In upcoming posts, you'll see water in many incarnations...after all the heat of the fires (see previous posts), I had a need to find my most magical waters and enshrine them in my memory again. Even now, I keep thinking of the clean and gentle sounds of water in the wild, rippling over stones.

Golden hour on the Blackfoot River
On clear days and in unburned places, (see previous post) the sound of fast-moving water was a joy. Water became a refuge.

Fending off fire
Now that September is here with cooler temperatures, the destructive power of the fires is abating to some degree. The drought, however, remains severe, and another bout of hot, windy weather could kick everything up again.
Pray for rain for the suffering land and all living beings present there.
