There’s an annual two-week gold rush in Alaska that provides unlimited ‘gold’, and everyone can stake a claim . . . Fall 😊😊😊

Flowers and Fire . . . Smiles and Spirits


Fireweed is named for its ability to rapidly colonize areas burned by fire. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance, and hope for a peaceful future.

Wandering the woods today my thoughts drifted into a muddled ambivalence. Past fires have regretfully scorched areas of my life … yet . . . I’m forever grateful having been mercifully spared, anticipating a forever peaceful future.

Flowers produce smiles, and smiles lift spirits. Native fireweed and poppy blooms lifted mine today.
