We send along our best wishes that you enjoy all the beauty the holiday season brings to your neck of the woods. Here's what it looks like around here these days:
The colorful sunsets are are mixed with smoke from the ongoing fires. We are so grateful for the fire fighters who have worked so hard to protect everyone in this area. Our hearts go out to all those who lost their homes.
The Getty Center was kept safe during the fires but the shrubby hills in the area are burned black. The buildings are made of stone and glass and the whole site is designed to be fire-safe, with a sophisticated air filtration system, plants with the highest water content nearest the buildings, and a one million gallon water reserve tank. The garden still resonates a clear calm.
