humans are very adaptable

Being able to see over a distance
is a wonderful thing.

I remember coming home from the Aleutians after a few years there.

The evergreens that I grew up with 
made me claustrophobic for awhile.

I had become accustomed 
to a very different lifestyle.

This can happen with current events, as well.  
we get used to a new level of insanity
pretty soon it seems normal

things we see

'The Burn' 8x8" oil pastel;  Kathleen Faulkner

 It was a bad year for fires

the burned areas were becoming miles of dark, 
beautiful patterns
 as we traveled along and the scenery flew by
