Love is a Burning Thing

And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

Little did I know that last night - as Roi was teaching me to play 'Ring of Fire' over at Dave's - Batty and Jon, along with several other SoCal bloggers and many others were watching a firestorm right outside their windows, some packing their most important stuff and leaving their homes because of the worst wildfires in many years.

I fell into a burnin' ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burn, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

It looks like Batty and Jon's place was unharmed. I'm seeing and reading on the news that so many others were not so lucky. I always get especially sad for the animals in these disasters.

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire ran wild

300,000 acres. That's a lot of land.
Looking at the maps of the affected areas, I know that these are the places that Tess and I drove through on our way to and from Solana Beach last month.
I hope that this gets under control soon.

Hi Krix,
it's Annie from Germany.

Sorry for not writing for so long but we've had
some major problems with the flight tickets.

Though we're still looking forward to our day in LA, we both feel quite strange going there.
I hope, people won't think we came to see the fire or sth really sick like that.
Are you still up for the meeting at Vegas airport?


Sorry for not emailing, I felt like this somehow matches the theme of you blog.

I hope the fires will be under control by then, in any case I don't think anyone would think you trip had anything to do with that.

Please email me when you know your plans.

Hope everyone is ok....

It's a terrible thing that's happening.

slightly off topic [well waaaaaaaay off topic - sorry krix]. Did anyone listen to the becky radio broadcast?

I added that question to the other entry, so hopefully someone will let us know.

Aw, that's terrible...
The fire, I mean, not the Becky-radioshow Netz spoke about ;-)

I don't know these bloggers, but I hope they'll be safe! I saw on the news somewhere that some of these fires were caused by arson. Can you believe that someone would deliberately do that??? What's the point of it? Sometimes I don't understand this whole 'human-being' thing at all... :-(

well, at least you were learning a truly perfect songwriting masterpiece. Johnny Cash was the man...
