with love to the people of Christchurch


I have been looking at numerous tragic images of the devastation caused by the earthquake in Christchurch, where both my parents were born. When so many people are suffering, and I am a long way away here in Las Vegas, it is hard to know how to respond. After 9/11, I went out into my garden in Wellington and photographed a bush with bright red flowers. I was looking for something beautiful and uplifting.
So today I am posting this photograph I took recently of a cool cactus doing its thing under tough conditions. Love to everyone in Christchurch.

I know... It is quite shocking and surreal.
I've been feeling the same way... but what can I do?
Sending them your love Jo is all that we can at the moment....
beautiful photo of cactus...
and lovely photos/posts all around.
The wonder of technology. It is great to be able to see bits and pieces of what you and Matt are seeing and experiencing.
