i find myself mellow and reflective today. tending towards tears rather than smiles. with the tv screen constantly showing tragedy and sorrow, my concern for others in affected areas not allowing me to turn away, to seek happier thoughts.
the statistics are terrifying. the fires are like an all consuming monster – whole towns devastated, hundreds of homes gone and many, many lives lost and still they burn on, swallowing our drought stricken state in their wake.
and then there’s todays date. a year today.
so, so sad.
