It was a perfect autumn cold, gray & wet day here in my town; a very stark contrast to what is going on in CA these past few days.

Hearing the stories of people losing homes, businesses & even lives kinda got me a little down on the drive home while listening to NPR.

When I finally got home I saw the lavender beauty that I picked from my garden Sunday & it made me smile & feel thankful for my life. It’s funny how little things can make you feel good.

This rose is for all those who lost & were lost in the burning embers way out west. Mindspill

This also goes out my embattled “Nigga” Nas; I’m looking forward to the new album. I just love albums with stupid ass names, they make me feel smarter.
