Happy Halloween!

On October 27th, 2007, thousands of people around the world synched in dance to Michael Jackson's "Thriller." It was the largest simultaneous thriller dance of all time.

Matt Mallams, Paul Myers, and I documented this 'historic' event in a multimedia piece.

My mom and dad came to visit for about 2 weeks as we settled into our new home. The last days of memorable times. This post is for them.

Thousands of homes were demolished by the wildfires in San Diego. One of the worst areas hit was Rancho Bernardo, specifically Lancashire St. So strange to drive down a lane, looking at the cookie cutter homes, one after another, and then come upon one completely destroyed- burnt to the ground. Almost like the fire was picking and choosing which houses should go, which ones have bad karma. One family had moved into their new home only a week before!

So, as people returned home, some drove into their garages with the smell of a home cooked meal wafting through the air, not even the siding of their house scorched; while next-door neighbors dug through all that remained of material memories, now only ash and metal.

A fresh start.

Evacuation and the Govenator

Hundreds of thousands of people fled their homes these past few days as wildfires raged throughout San Diego county and Southern California. So far thousands of homes have been lost to the flames and families across San Diego are now homeless. One place to seek refuge was Qualcomm Stadium, where thousands of people came for food and shelter. Times there were actually lighthearted, considering the circumstances. Clowns entertained, bands sang, families watched movies on the big screen, people eased their stress with the help of yoga classes and acupuncture, children had their faces painted and ran around with balloons, women sorted through donated clothing- seeming as though they were shopping at a department store, the media frenzied, and the masses crowded around governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Anderson Cooper, and Katie Couric. The people of this community really came together to make their neighbors feel their support and I have never before seen such compassion from so many individuals at once. I can't imagine what it must feel like to lose your home, at a moment's notice, just disappeared. I can only hope that everyone affected in this tragedy will soon feel at home again.
