The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Death toll rises to 25 as 200,000 flee the most destructive fires in California’s history

College professor Jeff McClenahan hiked up a winding road Saturday toward a terrible unknown, expecting the worst.

The ferocious Woolsey Fire had come through Friday after leaping the freeway. McClenahan had grabbed his wife’s computer and some documents and fled.

    I know someone who has lost her home in the fire at Paradise. She managed to grab her cats and the dog, but that was it. She drove through flames hoping the cars ahead could keep going and wouldn’t trap them all on the road. She is staying in a motel with her husband, son, and animals. She was sent a photo of what once was her home. There is nothing left. The hardest losses were her chickens and her roses.

    I don’t want to ask her if she will rebuild. It is not just their home that is gone, but the entire town. No businesses are left, and so their jobs burned with the buildings.

    Without shops, and businesses, and jobs, there is no town. Paradise may indeed be lost.
