It was a Friday morning this past November. Listening with half an ear to
the morning news I overheard that wildfires had broken out once again
in Southern California—my home for the past 20 years. This one started
in Montecito, an exclusive community nestled next to Santa Barbara.
Somehow I’ve gotten used to the reports of fires.
