The scariest fire I've been on all summer burned through the heart of Redding yesterday. Gusty winds pushed a fire down a gully and into town next to the river and botanical gardens. It didn't get any houses, but it had the potential too.
Someone once told me, "Stop messing around and go make little picture." It was the best advice I ever got. For over a year now, I've been moving around the country doing just that, trying to make a little picture. And once and while, it happens.
