Within the midst of latest emergencies, I’m struck by the fantastic thing about wildflowers in Indian Valley.

If you happen to had been lucky sufficient to be at Greenville Excessive Faculty soccer discipline final Saturday, you bought to witness one of the best of us: Judy Dolphin and others acknowledging the ceremony of commencement for some Greenville college students who graduated from elsewhere this 12 months. Commencements in Plumas County did not essentially point out the Indian Valley college students amongst them and that specific battle, so it was that rather more particular to have the celebration.
As we pull in the direction of the anniversary of the fireplace, this gentleness with one another will turn into increasingly essential. It has basically modified our perspective of the world. Take my mom’s outdated cat, Thomas. By all accounts he was essentially the most smug and detached creature on the planet (even for a cat) earlier than the fireplace. Now nevertheless, he is in all probability essentially the most loveable and (and needy) creature I’ve ever encountered. He is residing out his final years in southern California out and in of a lush yard in a comparatively fireplace protected space. I feel, if he is modified that drastically then he just about all of us have.
