Californian fires and Kimberly Black

Whilst we are running around at breakneck speed, launching a new company – a moment of perspective when I read an email this morning from our amazing uber-techie queen, Kimberly Black:

We were evacuated sunday at 830pm

Were about 30 miles away at a hotel

My mom stayed all her neighbors houses burned

Our house is ok for now but a new fire is threatening it

500000 residents evacuated

150000 acres burned

1000 homes lost

We can’t go home but may be able to tomorrow

And so the least of her problems is our ezine or virtual launch.
Everything on hold in Cornwall – because of fires in California – we are truly a global village.
We all send Kim our thoughts and best hopes.
