Prayer Flags


I found these colorful prayer flags out side of The Ark bookstore which is close to my house. It is a New Age/Spiritual bookstore that carries everything from books,music and things for your home.

Speaking of prayers, our thoughts go out to the firefighters who are fighting the two fires to the East and West of us. One first has already burned over 6500 acres. Needless to say smoke is everywhere. No rain in sight but we can hope it comes soon.

I really hope the rain comes Randy, I know exactly what it feels like to be so close to bush fires, not good!

My eye went to the water drain from the roof. I can imagine it just shooting out as if from a flume.

I wish I could send you some rain Randy.

These are lovely! A colleague of mine went to Nepal last year and he brought some back, we have them at the office.

I love the Ark and visit this little store every time I come to SF. I saw that there was a fire north and a tad east of Albuquerque and wondered if it was heading in your direction or toward Santo Domingo area. Sad no matter what direction it goes. My thoughts are with all those in harms way...

How terrible about the wildfires, I hope there is some rain in the forecast soon. I love these prayer flags, one of our cafes have a few and it adds such a nice feeling.

I like these prayer flags. Every year it is the same, wildfires in the forest and tornadoes in the plains. Maybe we should all hang some prayer flags.

Good luck to the brave firefighter! I am quite angry at you because you badly cut off of this picture a fine bench! It would have been nice with all the little flags...
