I've received a few notes from workshop attendees wondering if we're still having the TDS Fall Color event scheduled for October 26. The answer is yes. And I'm moving forward with everything else we've planned for the remainder of the year and in to 2018. There's no reason not to.
Anyone who has lived in Sonoma County for any period of time knows that we're already putting the pieces back together. True, the fires are not over yet. But we don't really have time to wait around for the all clear signal to get to work.
Many of us haven't had a home to go to since 1 AM Monday morning. And true, our productivity right now isn't what it will be soon. We have to spend big chunks of our day helping others less fortunate, finding services, and dealing with rustic living conditions.
That being said, we are all working.
Yesterday, I was able chip away at projects that didn't require connectivity or electricity. I photographed new items for TheFilmCameraShop, filled a couple orders, worked on the new version of the Wine Country Workshop, published on social networks, and helped my displaced family members.
As soon as I get power back at the studio, I'll start recording again. We will have a podcast this coming Tuesday. I will be ready for everyone when they arrive for the workshop in two weeks.
We have a hashtag going around here, #SonomaStrong. That pretty much sums it up. We have a lot of work to do in the coming months. We'll get it done. That's what we do.
You can share your thoughts at the TDS Facebook page, where I'll post this story for discussion.
