Today, it appears that southern California is exploding in fire. One of the casualties is this structure in Malibu known as Castle Kashan, home of philanthropist Lilly Lawrence. I took this photo a year ago in October of 2006 from the Serra Retreat facility across the canyon from the castle.
In recent years, no area of the world has been spared natural disasters. Fires and earthquakes are the realities of living in California. Still, it is devastating to watch homes burn, human beings in jeopardy, and even animals fleeing for their lives. It is just one more reminder of the fragility of our existence.
