The fires

This is where we’re at.

Australia is not going to be again the beautiful country it once was – not in my lifetime.

Have finally found home: in my ... ahh ... later years. With no family within coo-ee and no assets, I'm in a wonderful and totally independent unit within the auspices of a celebrated aged care organization. Idea is that I have two 'houses' I can move into were I to become cerebrally challenged: but it's my firm intention not to. :D P.S. I have no idea how I got to this number of years: I was young only last week ..

  1. No, that’s true. You know, I was looking at my photos yesterday of our walks in the Thredbo area last year, and remembered how I’d noted all the dead trees still there from their 2003 fires. That area – the Dead Horse Gap trail area, has, I think, been hit again this year, but so so much more all around has been damaged.

  2. I’ve cried at the photos and the stories that emerge, M-R. I am just appalled, shocked, and heartsick. I would think that being from California I’d have some idea of what you’re experiencing, but this disaster is beyond what I can even imagine. There are no words really, but your outrage is heard, and you’re not alone in that. Unfortunately, that provides absolutely no comfort! xx

    1. You’re wrong, for once, Debra: there is comfort to be found in your words and in those of all the people who are watching with horror what’s happening Downunder. We are reminded that we’re part of the great family ..


    1. Your sentiments are welcome, dear Hannah ! – we who live here but are not affected by these truly terrible fires feel exactly the same !


  3. We are shocked and deeply saddened by what is happening. As you say it is unnecessary. Just as our economic crisis is happening at a time when we’ve got the wrong man in charge, your environmental crisis is happening with the absolute wrong man in charge. Well done the good folk of Cobargo to tell him what so many think of him. Our thoughts are with the Australian people.
