Broadly, the topics that interest me are water, wellness and wildlife -- with a healthy dose of wonder in the mix.

DAVENPORT, Calif. (KGO) -- A Santa Cruz County man whose family lost everything in the CZU Complex Fire decided to write a touching letter to his daughter, letting her know her childhood home had burned down.
It was hard to ask Wallace J. Nichols to read his letter out loud. To read it on your own is enough to feel his deep love and sadness for the home he built for his family, just north of Davenport.
But, he obliged, fighting through tears. He said he hopes his words might inspire others who lost their homes to cherish their memories and remind them that despite the ruins, a home can be carried with you, forever.

I am so proud of you. I wish I could have protected our home from the fires. But I couldn't and I didn't.
But please carry the sweet memories with you wherever you go.
Stay safe, study hard, and come home often for hugs. Please.
I love you, peanut.
