I am shell shocked by the complete devastation, and loss of so many lives from the Victorian bush fires.
My own 'worries' just seem so insignificant, they are insignificant.
I feel lucky to have the people I love still with me.
I just can not imagine.
I feel lucky to have this frangipani growing outside the front gate,
it's not 'our' tree, we didn't plant it, it's quite old, it belongs to everyone, and I hope that everyone who walks by it gets the same sense of hope and renewal that I get when I look at it.
