When the Tubbs Fire roared through Santa Rosa’s Larkfield area in October, it not only gutted the northern end of the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, but also the nearby sculpture garden where a number of Sculptor Bruce Johnson’s (formandenergy.com ) monumental redwood-and-copper sculptures were on display. Sadly, some of the pieces were burned to the ground. The fickle flames left others severely charred, while some pieces went virtually untouched.

A few weeks after the fires were over, I attended a wedding reception for one of my cousins in the East Bay. She was registered at a high-end department store. The closest store is in San Francisco, but I was able to look at her registry online, listing expensive china and kitchen items. My cousin is in her 50’s, has money, has been married before. She doesn’t need these things.

As the recent North Bay fires raged, confusion, grief and shock gripped the entire community. In the depths of this chaos, local businesses, farmers, chefs, and wellness professionals came together to support the evacuees, volunteers and first responders with hot meals, holistic services, child care, and moral support. It was truly inspiring to see the care and generosity of the people who rallied offering so much support that within three days of the outbreak places were turning away donations and volunteers.
