SPEECHLESS

I’m speechless.


For a woman of many words, that’s a big deal. I’m not sure what exact moment the words left my mouth. Maybe it was when I watched the news feed on my iPhone last week.

Or maybe it was when my beloved California’s most deadliest fire of all time in history, hit that underbrush at rapid speed. And took away my family’s malibu home. Either way, my heart has sort of gone black and all of a sudden I’m speechless.

It is still very much a vivid memory embedded in my mind. Three wonderful years and a few busy months have passed and I can still see every detail. The footprint. The plans. The breaking ground.

And wonderful. I also had 2 too many glasses of cheap white wine there and woke up with a massive headache. I miss Napa. And I can’t do cheap wine anymore.
