    Hey, thanks for keeping the HR news flowing – brings me back to normal. Fire swept the Pack Creek Valley last week – all the trees and vegetation were toast. Three houses burned to the ground near me, but my house and studio survived – no internal damage, but lots of outside destruction. Will be able to live in my house and studio shortly, but meanwhile comfortable in town with friends. Onward! 🙏
