Wordless Wednesday - Love to Christchurch

Christchurch was hit by another devastating earthquake yesterday

Two buses were reported crushed by falling buildings

Pyne Gould Corporation building - many people trapped inside

The city quickly ran out of ambulances to take the injured to emergency centres

Hagley Park last night became the location of an emergency welfare centre housing approx 1500 ppl

A bridge in South Brighton

Christchurch Cathedral
CTV building - a friend of ours was working here yesterday and is still missing. We are desperate to hear news.
Wordless Wednesday, because the 75 confirmed dead (so far) brings us all to stunned silence.
Wordless Wednesday, because I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said.
I am sad. I am tired because like many others I have sat in front of the TV for most of the night.
Love to you all in Christchurch, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Permission to speak freely

Dear Cass

Let me remind you that you created your blog for you. It’s an outlet, a record, a hobby, a fun pastime, a relaxation tool.

It does not have to be funny, or inspiring, or intellectual, or anything else.

It does not have to have free giveaways to keep readers coming back. It’s ok if no-one is reading it.
You can write a post and not include any pictures.

It’s ok if each post is totally random and the blog does not appear to be about any one thing. Your life is random sometimes, as are your thoughts, so go with whatever’s on your mind that day and don’t worry about the entertainment value of any one post. It’s totally ok if a whole post is about nothing more than how you made the beds. It doesn’t matter if a post is boring. It doesn’t mean you’re boring.

Just write.

Because you miss it when you don’t.

And, as per usual, you’re making too many rules. Just enjoy the feeling of having put something down on paper, of having taken some time in the day to do something for yourself, of having created a space for yourself.
