Winter start to bushfire season — again

Seems to be the new normal, doesn’t it? See Sydney’s bushfire season starts in winter: ‘We may have to rethink how we live’. I look on with interest as there is a good chance I may get a ringside seat here in West Wollongong, as I said in 2013.

Some of yesterday’s outbreaks were not all that far away. See also my posts tagged “bushfire“.

#Strongwomen. "I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful - for all of it." Kristin Armstrong
