People often think of fire as a destructive force, and it can be. But fire also rejuvenates the land. Many grasses have evolved root systems that survive fires so they can be renewed, and some trees and other plants have seeds that only germinate after a fire has come through. Plus fires clean out old dead wood and other debris, making it easier for fresh plant life to grow. 

It’s like a picture of the tide coming in, somewhere in the Elemental Chaos.

Burning the old vegetation off the moors is a thing done every year here, in time for the new growth. Unfortunately it sometimes gets out of hand (Or happens accidentally) and there’s several times I’ve seen an entire hill on fire. Also the peat means that sometimes the fires will smoulder underground for some time before cropping up in unexpected places.

At first I was super upset, then I read his dad’s released statement: 
"Unfortunately there’s a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it. Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he’s capable of being. We’re grateful to the Sheriff’s department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale.”

YES GOOD THAT IS HOW YOU NEED TO REACT WHEN YOUR KIDS DO SOMETHING HARMFUL NOT IGNORANCE, NOT PRAISE OR NOT EVEN EXTREME ANGER. SUPPORT. YES. SUPPORT AND LOVING GUIDANCE.

I am sick and tired about how people are reacting to Ebola, JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS AFRICAN HERITAGE DOES NOT MEAN THEY HAVE EBOLA, TALKING TO AN AFRICAN AMERICAN ON THE PHONE SURE AS HELL WILL NOT GIVE YOU EBOLA! ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THAT THE PERSONS FAMLIY COMES FROM THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE CONTINENT OF THE OUTBREAK AND HE HASNT BEEN TO AFRICA IN HIS LIFETIME. Stop being stupid, stop being ignorant. Stop talking about Ebola as if it is a joke. People are dying but no one gave a shit because they were from Africa. If Ebola didn’t kill them something else will kill them eventually, right? Have a heart and actually learn your facts, just because I was in Africa this summer DOES NOT mean I have Ebola- and if I hear one more person say “well why don’t we just send them back to Africa” I will literally explode
