I live in Sonoma County where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. Recently we have been battered with Atmospheric River Storms. Our river could not handle all of the rain and has flooded it banks and submerged towns. Sometimes in the mist of all of this rain I think about a spot I would like to transport back in time. September 2018 in the redwoods in northern California. I sat on this bench and took a deep breath of the forest air and closed my eyes.
