We, collectively, lost a lot of trees in the Lilac fire. I watched on TV as palms lit up like torches,
sprayed embers over roofs and began attic fires. I've always loved the look of tall palms lining driveways
or in clusters around homes. Now, I'd never live in S. California with such a fire hazard
near my home.
With those flaming palms featured in my dreams last night, I was bleary eyed when I openedBrain Pickings by Maria Popova this morning, a Sunday morning pleasure.
I was enchanted by these Arthur Rockam tree illustrations.
