We lived on the world’s tiniest houseboat in Marina Del Rey ON the water and far from anything resembling a forest. Yet,my husband’s elderly aunt and uncle lived in Novato, on top of a mountain surrounded by nothing but forest.
It’s only been a few years when we were in Los Angeles working to sell my screenplays, when the fires near Magic Mountain raged out of control. San Diego area was ablaze. To the North of us and the South, it felt like California would be consumed. We had driven in from Novato making sure Jed’s aunt and uncle were safe, and they were, but all along the “5” interstate, it was a stream of fire trucks, engines and firefighters driving to southern California. The trucks had license plates from all over the west. Many from Washington. THAT scene will stay in my mind forever. So many men and women, risking their lives to come to a state far from their homes and families to fight a hungry demon of a fire, to risk their lives for people they didn’t know.
I don’t know how heartwarming a scene can get, but for me that one settled into my bones and cells.
The smoke even at the Marina, on the water, was so dense, I couldn’t breathe. I HAD to get back to our home in Scottsdale for a major doctor appointment I’d prepared for for over a month. We got into our car in the middle of the night and started driving. We kept the radio on and discovered that at three in the morning, the state had closed I-10 going east and no traffic was allowed on the highways. We had just missed that closing by two hours. We got to Scottsdale safely and my “procedure” was performed for the thyroid and vocal cord cancer I’d had.
But my prayers those weeks were for all our friends and family back in California. There’s not a “fire season” that goes by that I don’t say extra prayers that this year the number of fires will lessen. Rain will fall and all the firefighters and smokejumpers are safe.
I hope you enjoy my story.
God bless you all,
