Please send prayers and healing energy to California. Mother Nature is expressing herself in an angry outbreak of more than 15 wild fires. I have close friends--a family of four--in Santa Rosa who evacuated on foot and barely made it out alive. They lost their home and were not able to save any belongings. Some friends are starting a fund raiser for this family so I will share that information soon. I am terrified by the destructive force of fire, but understand it is Mother Nature's way of purging.
