For the last five years I have lived at a life care place (Meadow Ridge) in Redding, CT. But for the last 18, I have spent most of my time with Roxanne Wilke, a fellow Asian scholar whom I met at Berkeley in 1964. In 1972, she got herself invited to China where she interviewed Mao Zedong’s wife and wrote a book about it. I’ve worried about California—and especially Thacher—in the fires. I spent a night at Big Sur some years ago and there was a fire down the coast with ominous smoke over the whole area so I can dimly imagine what it would be like to have a house there. I would be pleased to have any additional info about the California fires. It’s my home state and I still miss it.
