A sombre start to the week as our thoughts are with those who have lost family, homes and friends in the fires down south, with gratitude to the firefighter heroes on the frontlines including volunteers from British Columbia. Let’s hope for better days to come this week.
Yesterday I took this picture of one of our beautiful camellia’s illuminated by the afternoon sun. Today I was going to post it for a happy Easter Sunday but now it evokes a very different emotion with the news from Sri Lanka this morning. I post it now with a heavy heart and send heartfelt condolences and sympathy to all those suffering so far away but yet so close, and hope that its beauty will help ease the pain of yet another dark day.
“Ich bin ein Berliner”
With condolences and deepest sympathy to all those suffering loss and injury today.
Last year I was Charlie and then Paris, today I am Orlando, and once again find myself needing to express my solidarity and sympathy through the best way I know how with all those mourning today in Orlando, in the United States and around the world and particularly with all those in the LGBT community.
