There’s a lot of smoke. The air here is very unhealthy. It’s from the forest fires in California and Oregon. The other day the air and sky were bright orange and I thought the Earth had become Mars.
I’ve written a similar post to this around the same time the last three years. Whenever the smoke is like this I want to move. I have to be careful of my lungs. But I don’t feel a pull to go to any other city. We’ll see what happens.
Mostly I stay inside with the windows and doors closed. We have five air purifiers going all the time. They help a lot. If you’re looking for a good air purifier, I recommend the Honeywell HPA 100, 200, or 300, depending on room size.
The smoke and the fires are a good reminder to me that nothing is stable in life. Change will and does have its way. Sometimes it’s good change, and sometimes I don’t like it.
