I'll just copy/paste it below the fold, his words speak better than mine.
Hi JtC. I’m fine. I have been the whole time. Just hard to get the word out. An Englishman in Marin read in the Times last week that I had no cellphone and bought me an iPhone and sent it to a local newspaper gal and she drove it up. That’s the kind of blessedness I’ve been in, the whole way. The kindness of strangers is real. I’m so supplied up here it’s embarrassing. Wednesday eight PG&E guys worked in the dark to make the line to my house just so and then when I flipped the mains and the house lit they all cheered. It was like Christmas. Gas will take longer. AT&T maybe weeks, and I won’t be writing until that comes back because the keys on this phone are impossible for me. Slow as cutting stone. I’m locked out of my gmail account. Because google is evil. : ) Am using xxxxxx.com. This phone is xxx xxx xxxx. My area is still closed and not sure when it will open. Nobody can get by the National Guard Dobermans but workers and some media. I’m one of very few residents who stayed and can’t leave or they won’t let me back in. And I wouldn’t miss this for anything. Because despite what the fake news may say, Paradise is alive. A utility worker after 17 straight days was flown home to North Carolina on a break. But it didn’t feel right. So after six hours he said goodbye to his wife and kids and got on a plane and flew back. “I’m supposed to be here,” he told me. They’re all like that. The day after they lit my house the crew chief came by and gave me his sack lunch. They do that all the time. It was raining, and he was wistful, because that meant “I can’t light anybody up today.” So he was driving around, mapping out in his mind his next moves, envisioning what will be. Paradise is alive in the hearts and minds of all these people, and they are working to bring that into the Real. I’ve read some of what is on the site and you’ve all been very kind. Everyone everywhere has been kind. Because people are basically good. I know that for sure now. And kindness is all. Feel free to share all of some of this on the site. Love you all. Kevin.
What great news!
Thank you all.
