photoblog image THE JOURNEY AHEAD

THE JOURNEY AHEAD

 

It will be a long hard journey for a lot of people worldwide this year due to the extreme weather conditions. Property and belongings can be replaced, but the terror and pain will remain for a long time.  My thoughts are with the families that lost loved ones, theirs is the longest journey of all.

Absolutely Aussie: I'm with you on that
Quite right Aussie. We had floods here in 2007 and the mess that is left is dreadful but the scale and ferocity of the floods you have had is on a different level altogether.

Please know that the world is thinking about you there in Queensland especially, Aussie. It's heart-breaking. Your image today is so highly symbolic, too.
Aussie: I have been very lucky, no flood. Lost contact with a friend (Chris) for 30 hours during the worst of the Lockyer Valley flood. It was just awful, imagining the worst, his mother contact police etc. He was safe but all communication was down, so it ended well

I think I was looking forward to 2011 but it has not started well.Do you still have rels in Horsham
Aussie: heaps but no flood at their place
It seems AU is such a land of extremes. It must be very hard to cope with a disaster like this. I'm sure the population will all pull together to share in the grief and rebuilding. Your photo is very beautiful.
Fantastic image Aussie,that goes so well with your words smile
Your words and the image go so well together Aussie, I'm glad you are o.k., and Tony, Sdrian and Cheryl. I have relatives in Brisbane and was so relieved to get an email yesterday saying they had escaped the floods where they live.

Very graphic illustration of your thought here, Aussie.

People are resilient...most will shrug it off...

I like this parable - dealing with life's trauma is like a journey. The trauma is like being shunted onto a different track to new destinations, requiring adaptation and re-planning.

Great posting. I hope you are mending after your fall etc.
great view. quite right about the long journey ahead for citizens of so many countries around the world
