The terrific heat of a California summer afternoon radiating and roiling over and through the oak woodland is a foundation of my soul. I grew up on the edge of over one hundred thousand acres of oak woodland wilderness area. The backyard of my youth was free rambling along the crests of the hills, dropping down into the Redwood forests in the depth of the valleys, climbing huge trees, and catching frogs, snakes and salamanders in the streamlets winding their way through the cool on the forest floor.
