We are in Sonoma surrounded by Nature. It's a good place to be when it seems as if everything is falling apart. Nature carries on. Oaks that seemed lost to the 2017 fire are leafing out again, and animals are milling around munching on grasses and reproducing along with turkeys who are strutting their stuff. Birds. The birds! It all gives me hope. When panic sets in I walk outside and I am absolutely sure that something good will come of all this.
