Riding the Bart out of Oakland I see the houses on the hill bathed in that resplendent orange sunset light and I remember that they used to look like far away forest fires from my rooftop lookout in San Francisco.

The world is on fire all around you, but here you’re safe, it seemed to say.

Or, maybe, I just needed glasses.
