My family and I are still working through our thoughts and emotions related to the Waldo Canyon Fire. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose one's house -- the sheer mass of paperwork and shopping and looking for a place to live, and then add to it trying to counsel one's children? And keep them fed/dressed/clean? Let's not even go there. I don't know how I'd do it.
So when I say we're still working through our thoughts and emotions, it feels a bit ridiculous.
This week it will be one month since the fire started. The fire is still burning, and expected to continue burning until December. As a way to commemorate the first month, Scott edited the videos we took during the fire and put them to music that reflects how we were feeling as we watched it burn. It's about 7 minutes long -- don't feel bad fast-forwarding. For me, watching it for the full seven minutes is a bit like meditating. I take a deep breath and watch and listen and pray.
