Baby Blue

 

Baby Blue

 

This morning I woke up with this Dylan song in my head. It seems related to our latest evacuation experience. In the middle of the night, just before midnight Monday, we were ordered by the fire department to evacuate due to a fire threat.

Needless to say this is an unnerving experience to go through.

So we gather the dogs, cats and 1 parrot along with ourselves in our cars and head out to a hotel. The wildfire started in Samuel P. Taylor Park, 5 minutes form home. YIKES!

Residents were allowed back in the next day to the sound of helicopters over head carrying water with retardant, as the fire department continued to fight the fire.

These tireless firemen are our current heroes as they fight multiple fires in the state of California.

The best part of this day was a sprinkler attached to the roof; bring the sound and feel of rain. Very soothin

 

You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last
But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun
Crying like a fire in the sun
Look out the saints are comin’ through
And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense
Take what you have gathered from coincidence
The empty-handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
This sky, too, is folding under you
And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home
All your reindeer armies, are all going home
The lover who just walked out your door
Has taken all his blankets from the floor
The carpet, too, is moving under you
And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you
Forget the dead you’ve left, they will not follow you
The vagabond who’s rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore
Strike another match, go start anew
And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

 

It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue
