Because of the terrible fires that ravage Australia these days, I’d like to tell all my friends how much I think of them and I pray for them.
I left this wonderful country almost 3 years ago, after having spent 7 extraordinary years there. All these splendid landscapes, this wild nature, these atypical animals and these great people, I have never felt as much at home (while I’m French) as in Australia.
I already mentioned this country in previous articles:
Christmas in Brisbane
My favourite animals
I learned to breathe (literally and figuratively), to enjoy life (and to stop at the crosswalk), to eat more healthily (love the avocado toast!), to respect my environment (we don’t kill spiders there, nor any species or insect!!), and to put my work in the background (besides I don’t work at all anymore hahaha).
NSW and Victoria are currently the most affected states by fires. Victoria is under a "red code" warning.
Since September, over 1.2 million hectares has burnt in NSW. Some fires continue to burn in Queensland and South Australia.
Smoke has invaded the cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The weather forecast should be better in the coming days, with less wind, hoping it helps enough.
In my article Superwomen, I paid tribute to the firemen and firewomen, let’s mention them again in this article.
In addition to fires, some countries are under the snow, others underwater, not to mention the earthquakes ... Disasters don’t seem to end, at the time of social media and instant connection, remember that we are part of the same planet and the same species: humanity.
If the leaders of this world are only concerned about their financial interests, don’t forget that each of us can act on our level, we all have a conscience and intelligence, so let's use it!
"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” Albert Einstein.
Wherever you are, stay safe and take care,
Love & Courage,
