Forest Floor In the West — Abstract Art by kenne

Almost 100 fires and complexes are burning over one million acres across the United States. Thousands of wildland firefighters
and support personnel are assigned to incidents. To date, 34,411 wildfires have burned 2,255,218 million acres.

Now more than ever, we need your help to prevent wildfires. When you work and play in our precious public forests,
parks and rangelands, it is critical for you to be fire safe. Have spark arresters on equipment and vehicles like chain saws,
motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. Exhaust systems on any vehicle can easily ignite vegetation, so drive and park in
designated areas keeping off and away from dry grass and brush. Taking these simple steps can keep our natural resources
from going up in smoke. —

“The world isn’t just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?
And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn’t that make life a story?”

― from Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Little Cactus On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

Little Cactus On Mt. Lemmon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The most visible creators I know of are
those artists whose medium is life itself.
The ones who express the inexpressible —
without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar.
They neither paint nor sculpt — their
medium is being. Whatever their presence
touches has increased life. They see and
don’t have to draw. They are the artists of
being alive.

— J. Stone
