Ponderosa Interview

I: I feel very peaceful here and am wondering if it feels differently to you. You are surrounded by trees that, like you, were damaged by fire. What we would call corpses are scattered around you. Do you feel this? Can you describe what it is like?

Ponderosa Interview

I: What is your hope for the next hundred years?
