Interrupting the series I was planning to share from Canada because my heart is breaking over all the wildfires that are burning around my new home state both in the north and very close to where @dante.vincent
& I live here in Los Angeles. In fact, the Hindu Temple where he took this photo of me is very very close to the epicenter of the Woolsey Fire that has now caused Malibu to be evacuated. This naturally beautiful part of SoCal is often thought of only in the context of celebrities but many many hard-working, non-famous people live in this area and have now been forced to leave their homes and even in some cases already... lose their homes.
As you see the news, or spread the news, have some compassion for these people and all the people affected by these fires; choose to do something for them, if you can, instead of just contributing to sensationalizing. I can’t believe how many people I’ve seen actually saying in response to news of the fires things to the effect of, “Celebrities deserve it. Who cares!” No one *deserves* this kind of loss. 💔
