I stopped by Eve's Revolution tonight. She mentioned that she found that staying open during the Waldo Canyon Fire had a comforting effect on a lot of her customers. I believe it. For me, visiting was a part of stepping back into life after the fire.

Her shop had a slight slowdown in business, but she wasn't evacuated or shut down. That doesn't mean she wasn't affected by the fire.

I don't ask anyone: 

- Were you affected by the fire?

I ask, 

  • How were you affected by the fire?

Eve summarized the experience in a word that struck me as the best one possible. She said:

  • It's humbling. 

Indeed it is. 

If you haven't seen the time-lapse of the fire, I recommend that you watch. It really is humbling. And awe-inspiring.
