“Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behaviour. You'll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry.”

Point Arena to the north.
Monterey Bay recorded the largest waves it
has seen in 30 years with the swell reaching 34.12 feet, well over 10 meters, at one point. The
previous record was 32.8 feet in 2008.

storms pounded Southern California, dropping nearly 4 inches of rain south of
Los Angeles, flooding freeways and raising concerns about damaging mudslides.
