Linda and I sold our forested Atherton home of 50-plus-years that, when we moved in, had on one side an acre with a one-bedroom cabin and, on the other, 20 acres of foxes, raccoons and skunks. We moved to a retirement community in forested Portola Valley (the Sequoias). We’ve been covid-confined to the property for months, and have experienced no virus cases among some 300 residents. This has been surely the most bizarre of times: covid, global-warming-compelled lightning-ignited wildfires galore, and an escalating fear for the future of life on Earth. Hoping for the evolution of a global culture operationally appreciative of the miracle of existence.
