Let's sit on the porch together and meditate

Our thoughts have power.  Today, we wish to focus them on the people who have been evacuated from their homes in Colorado as a fire rages.

Hundreds of homes have already been lost.  But most are still intact, including that of our Nurse Kelley.  Kelley is currently in a hotel with her cats.  It is not a comfortable situation but right now she is safe.

Let's see her on the other side of this disaster, at home in comfort and safety, sleeping in her own bed, in good health.  Let's see her cats at home with her, relaxed and happy.  Let's see her property in good order, intact and just as she left it.

May all the people who have been displaced by this fire be home soon, in comfort and safety, their belongings intact.

For those who have lost their homes, may they have comfortable shelter and ease in rebuilding.

May the animals of the forest be able to return to their habitat, with new growth to nourish and shelter them.

May the firefighters be safe, job well and safely done, the fire over.  Let's see them returning to their homes to loving arms of family and friends.

Let's envision peace and healing in the area of the fire.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
