Gratitude Walk in Hazardous Times

You know the air is bad when someone visits your small, rural, seaside town from China and tells you, “This reminds me of Beijing.”

After learning air quality where I am will be in the “very unhealthy” range the next few days thanks to this app on my phone – check it out for your location – I decided to go to the most pollution sequestering place I know among old growth trees to give thanks and record some green, cool images for a blessing in these days of fire.

Thank you moss, thank you ancient trees, thank you ferns, thank you cool underground spring at a time when 98% of my state is in drought. And thank you, thank you fire fighters who put their lives on the line to try to put out these raging fires.

I’m going to try an N-95 face mask while working outdoors this week. Here’s a good description of what masks work best for fire pollution.
