Friends, dear friends. I started this blog post on Saturday in the beautiful kitchen of our friends Joan and Floyd in Mill Valley. I’m finishing it Monday night from my beautiful Danish desk in my home office in Sonoma. We’re home.
Just two days ago Russ and I woke up in Mill Valley doing what we’ve done every morning: study the fire map to see how close the fires are to Sonoma and hoping for evidence of containment of the fires all around us. On Saturday Sonoma was in the greatest danger. Fires had come down from the hills and were heading into the east side of town, coming to within five blocks of the Sonoma Plaza. How do you even wrap your head around that?
