Genjoji in the fire line

On the many fires still raging in Northern Californai - "Bill and Laura Kwong just had to evacuate Sonoma Mtn Zen Center from the Tubbs fire."  - Sent by Judy Gilbert. Nearby Grange road was evacuated and Rachel Boughton, John Tarrant's partner and a teacher in Pacific Zen Institute has left their home and so has John's ex Roberta next door and don't know about the fate of their homes and the barn where Katrinka and I lived for 8 years on that estate. John is in Bhutan now. The PZI center downtown Santa Rosa is near the Luther Burbank center which I think burned down. My ex Elin and her husband Dave her mom's almost finished home near there are okay and not far from areas of destruction. Ken and Elizabeth Sawyer and their Back Porch Zendo near Occidental and their neighbors Chris and Bruce Fortin are okay and Tony Patchell and his Guerneville zendo and Jisho and the Graton zendo are all okay as far as I know. That's it for now. - DC
