Eerie Peaceful Beauty

With the land ablaze around me from bush fires currently in my home of NSW Australia, the eruption of emotions is as flammable as the fire itself. Fear, anxiety, sadness at the catastrophic destruction of our ecosystem is tearing at my very existence. My breath is stolen from me, my heartaches. But somehow amongst all of this, is an eerie peaceful beauty. A feeling of hope, a place of beauty at the resilience of human spirit. For amongst the darkness and the haze there is hope, we just need to find it…….this feels never-ending, I’m exhausted.
