From the Fire

Description

In the wake of the October fires that devastated my community in the North Bay, I wanted to create a piece that symbolized hope and rebirth in a time of tragedy. I drew upon readings from my ESPM 50 class that recalled the fire management techniques that Native Americans used; we learned how their fires revitalized the soil with essential nutrients and eventually created lush meadows. I can only hope that the same spirit of rejuvenation will make the North Bay even stronger in the tough years to come, as people try to reassemble their lives after the most devastating urban wildfire California has ever seen.
