When I published the opener to this subject of change I had no idea about Laura, hurricane Laura that is. She was a category four hurricane making landfall on August 27th. Just fourteen days after my first post about change.
As I watched the newscasts I thought about all the change that would come to people’s lives. I wondered if they were prepared.
I’m writing this follow-up from my office that is about forty miles to the east of one major Oregon fire and forty miles west of what may become the largest fire ever recorded in Oregon. Two fires on either side of me. The skies over me are an eerie amber. A dystopian shade of grey-red. Ash covers my car outside, I’m listening to the news and watching the evacuation orders. Change may soon come to my door.
