My spirit wishes to express something poignant and poetic about the trauma, and overwhelming community generosity, my country is experiencing right now.

But I decided I would share this video instead.
How I love you dear Australia.

            I was in Delhi this time last year,
            and the smog there was just as
            thick, only much more toxic.
            It rained one evening, and the next
            morning you could actually see blue
            sky for the first time during our stay.
            The only thing was the rain drops
            seemed to burn holes through my
            leather jacket.

      I so agree Ivor! This video made my day when I saw it…I hoped it would help others ❤
      Oh I am so glad…our air quality was terrible today, but now a cool change has come…we are hoping very much for some rain…will definitely have fingers crossed and much praying that there will be more rain than in the forecast…it has happened before…
      Stay safe Ivor! xo

      Dear Yassy, we are thank you! We were in danger actually, in October when there was a fire right in our town at the end of our street but the amazing fire fighters saved all the houses that were near it.
      This time my parents were much closer to the danger, but fortunately their little town has stayed safe. We are so very grateful! But a lot of people we know have been effected, and know someone who lost their life. It has been surreal.
      Thank you thank you for your love xxoo

      Hi Allane!
      Are they?
      Are they in the Perth area? The fire swept over the Nullabor in parts.
      Hope you’re well?
      The cyclone season up north has started which has been wonderful actually, not too much damage and a lot of rain coming. All of our fingers are crossed 🙂
