Happy to be alive

Driving back from the beach on the 4th of July, we suddenly saw this horrible burning car on the other side of the road! I happened to have my camera SITTING IN MY LAP (!) and I snapped a few shots.

Emma (who was driving) and I were both praying that no one was in the vehicle. I looked in the newspaper and didn't see anything; there was nothing on the radio, either. So I am assuming (hoping) all were safe.

When I think of all the close calls life delivers, it's a miracle we make it from one day to the next. Danger surrounds us. I'm not trying to be gloomy. On the contrary, I am LUCKY to be alive. And happy.

Be safe! Let's be good to ourselves -- and each other!
