So far, the air currents are keeping the smoke from the forest fire out of the town. I am watching the smoke billow above the foothills to the southeast. The clouds shade gradually from brown to white as they rise. their forms shift rapidly, and I see suggestive shapes in them. An elephant just rose up, distended, and vanished. Near it was a white helmet with a dark slit across it, looking like those worn by the Imperial troops in Star Wars. Now, the top of the smoke column has sprouted two broad wings, as though a giant white bird were about to swoop across the sky. A spectacular show, but not really worth the price of admission.
