Hello my tribe of friends across the world.
I have tried to write this post so many different times yet words have seemed to always escape me. As many of you know watching the news that our area in Northern California/Chico/Paradise and many of the surrounding communities have been utterly devastated by the recent CAMP Fire, reported worst in CA history with 95% of Paradise city completely burned to the ground. Since Chico is only 8 miles from Paradise, many of us live in one place and commute to the other. This indescribable fire in Paradise has displaced approx 52,000 people with over 18,000 structures (>13,000 primary residences), 93 having been killed with over 200 still missing 😔. It has also destroyed a hospital, doctors offices and support services of any kind.[...]
