Colorado is healing - Sun through the leaves

I'm happy to say that things are starting to feel more normal here in Colorado. The rain has stopped, and cleanup and rebuilding efforts are in full swing. The best news is that more and more people are being accounted for as the rescues continue.
On a personal level, we finally got our electricity and hot water back (never thought I'd be so grateful to re-acquaint with my washing machine!) Our lower level had to be gutted, and despite three pumps continuosly pumping out, water is still seeping up and across the floors - apparently the water table is so high there's nowhere for it to go!
However, almost everything we lost is replaceable, and I'm feeling very, very grateful for all the help, food, support, and kindness we've received.
Hopefully by next week I'll be able to put down the wet-vac and pick up a paintbrush!
I painted this piece "Sun through the leaves" a couple of weeks ago but I thought it was really appropriate under the circumstances.
