Exactly 260 days ago, on the day 1 Iq' (15th February 2018) we watched the mountain burn as we made ceremony on the hillside opposite. In just a couple of hours it raced all the way from the road to the summit, sometimes moving at s frightening speed. That was the biggest fire I have seen on that mountain for six years, and it left a blackened landscape with no sign of life. Little by little, greenness returned through the year, and now we are treated to the most brilliant display of beauty. Maybe I have not been paying close enough attention, but I don't think I have ever seen so many flowers on the hillside.
The fire, ferocious as it was, mostly burned away the dead stuff, the old dry leaves and branches. This made space for the new to come in. The scarred, blackened land has been rejuvenated, and even shows more beauty than before. Time to bring that brilliance and beauty into life.
