You may have heard: there are 50 ft tall flames in majestic Big Sur, California.
At this time, the fire is 20% contained.
20 homes have been consumed.
Properties and communities forced to evacuate.
As with acts of nature and sudden change, hearts have been ignited.
The property where I live was evacuated at 3am on Monday morning. Our community members are safe and there are eight bold men actively protecting the property and home.
My daughter and I are impacted by this fire, however, we are safely housed in Seaside, CA with the luminous Lisa Goettel, Creator of the Rise Up Singing Experience.
I feel at ease with the potential of losing “stuff” and that said, would love to have personal documents secured.
Foremost, I am grateful for the safety of our community members.
My heart reaches out to those who have lost their homes, art, and for a moment, a cherished sense of center.

This fire in Big Sur…
The fire in my heart to express my gratitude for this life, this body, these people, this moment…
On the cusp of my daughter and I moving to Bali for six months, we are confronted with letting it go…. letting it all go…. again.
We are riding the waves of change with as much grace as we can – balancing grief with joy, loss with appreciation, pain with acceptance.
This is the dance.
We tap into the heat and we call for the rain – tears, release, renewal.
In this moment of the dance, I am reminded of the transformative nature of fire, the element that allows alchemy.
It is the digestive fire that turns food into nutrition.
The heat of the fire element that transforms liquid water into vapor.
Flames that cleanse and clear the understory of a forest and healing hearts.
