#Repost @firstlightfarm ・・・ Lisa from @firstlightfarm asked her firefighter friend how we can show we can show gratitude. He said homemade treats would be awesome, "anything that helps give us more fuel and calories while we're working on the line" would be excellent. So until 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 18th, for those who want to send love to the firefighters we're collecting a giant gratitude package. Baked goods, homemade nutrition bars, or any care package items you want to share with the firefighters from all over the US, Canada and Australia. He mentioned they like crossword puzzle books (as they are far away from home and probably too tired to do anything else) and often are in need of deodorant. Please attach your or your family's picture (if you can), so they can see who is grateful for them. Lisa is collecting these items at First Light Farm, in the wooden farm stand, 4588 Bodega Avenue, Petaluma, on the West Side and will pick them up Wednesday the 18th before dark. Please just put whatever you have brought on the tables inside the shed starting in the morning. Lisa won't be there, but you might see some of the friendly and hard working farm crew. Other ideas of what to bring if you don't have time to bake - pictures your kids made, small tokens, cards, stuff for them to do in camp, please do so. Please put and wrap any food you make in a container or plate you don't need back. In NO WAY, at all, should this small effort distract from anyone's efforts to support evacuee food and supplies efforts which are so critical. This is an effort to make gratitude visible to those who've supported us through this. Please share. Photo by @chlorisfloral

The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe. — Joanna Macy 💔 This quote has been working on my soul for nearly 2 decades. The last 10 days have burned down walls in my heart as I awoke taking in the magnitude of the fire that tore through Santa Rosa a week ago Sunday night, terrified for my in-laws living near Coffey Park. As I was taking in the flurry of emergency alerts and social media posts, dawn hadn't even arrived in California. It was pre-dawn when I urged my husband to call them, now. We finally heard back. They were watching the embers, keeping an eye on the roof, ok for now. 💔 As days went by, I watched my news feed, watched fire maps twinkle like Christmas lights, watch as so many friends evacuated wistfully. Many waited for good news that didn't come. The ones that are getting the all clear bring moments of joy. 💔 The outreach and open arms from my beloved Petaluma makes me proud. My people stepped up like they do, it's an amazing spirit of giving and loving. 💔 While we waited and prayed for calm, moist air, news of another sexual predator emerged. Sonoma County hadn't been tested to its limit since Polly Klass went missing and then was found murdered and abandoned. Our collective hearts were on the ground then too. 💔 Out of that grief for the child, for male violence against women and children a quarterly ritual of bearing witness was born. Born of Woman. We grew the movement. 💔 As the world watched this week as yet another chaotic climate event raged over the land, their hearts broke open. In that grief, they remembered the violence against the land was man made, just like the violence against these women that started whispering, "Me too. Yo también. You are not alone." 💔 Then my news feed was a duet of grief. Grief for the land, for creatures furry and the ones that buzz, for the homeless, for the women. So many women. 💔 My heart broke open. I reached out. I was ready to let the walls burn so my sisters could flood in. I am holding the universe for you. We hold the universe for you. As Joanna Macy says, it's that big. 💔 #youarenotalone #metoo #sonomastrong #sonomaproud #lovingkindness #heartopening #fiercewomen

Had a beautiful #datenight #dinner at Lunaflor in #matagalpa The curry shrimp was delish. Local, fresh veggies and a diverse menu of local favorites and dishes for Gringos far from home. Highly recommend this cafe. Great wine and beer list. Quality with a modest price. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #dining #michelinstarfood #matagalpacraftbrews #matagalpanicaragua #nicaragua
