Toowoomba devastation

12 January 2011

The floods in Australia are practically getting worse and worse by the day, and as people are struggling with what's left of their homes, appeals are coming from all over for charity and help. Well, I've said before how I feel about this issue.



The video above shows the sheer power of nature - and it's really only a taste of what she can really do. It's scary, because we're all so safe in our little worlds but something that's so utterly out of our control can take everything away from us.

I'd like everyone to smell the bluegums sometimes and appreciate life for what it is: it's not about money, or work, or hobbies...it's about living.
