I have no title..



Not much to say today, I feel very sad! Don't you wonder if there is life on other planets that they are more than likely looking down on us thinking 'and they wonder if we're intelligent'! Waking up to the news this morning that once again so many innocent people had died in a senseless act of violence was horrendous.. you wonder when and if it'll ever stop.. my heart goes out to all those families who thought in all good faith that their loved ones would return home and I'm sure like me you must despair how many more will perish in the name of religious fanatics and greedy politicians. I don't feel very inspired right now so I'm thinking this may be a good time to have a break.. work in the garden, walk by the water, read some books. Catch you soon, take care and you keep safe...

  1. I really shouldn't be looking at commentary in some of the social media sites on that- I've seen some reprehensible comments on that plane crash.

    A beautiful scene, Grace.

  2. Humankind on this planet have engaged in violence for centuries, and I seriously doubt that it will ever stop. Political power lies at the heart of much of the conflict. Shameful conduct.

  3. Looking back over my 81 years one can only wonder -- when does it stop??? When do people look for other ways to solve problems rather than with violence which not only fails to create positive change, but makes any and all problems even worse??? It is heartbreaking and I do hurt for all of those families who have lost a loved one. Take care, Grace.

  4. I can't begin to imagine what the families are going through Grace, and I also am too sad to feel any inspiration today - instead I will keep today as a day of mourning and contemplation.

  5. I agree with your views Grace, a very sad day indeed for the whole world and for the families of those who lost their life due to this senseless act.

  6. I cannot believe the comments I saw on Facebook--people complaining because TV coverage of the plane shot down had pre-empted their soaps. One commenter went so far as to say, "It's not one of ours, so no big deal." Made me ashamed to be American....

  10. Don't think religion figures very prominently in today's conflicts, Grace. As always, they're about power and control.

  11. Yes, Gracie, I feel the same after watching it all in the early hours of this morning and thinking about all those poor families... so sad. Beautiful photo though.

  12. I am with you on this one. I am still numbed because two people on board were from my peninsula. I had to include some mention of them in my post today, even though it had already been scheduled. We now have one unresolved resolved conflict in Gaza and this one with Ukraine and Russian tensions. Meanwhile, an Australian suicide bomber in Iraq barely made the airwaves. It's all too crazy.

  13. It is madness. Clear your head and enjoy a quiet day away from it all.

  14. Grace, I share your concerns about the senseless violence. I'm reminded of the Beetles song, "Have you heard the news today, Oh boy..." Innocent people are dying because of nationalism, religion, and/or ideology. It is so senseless.

  15. It was enough to drive a pacifist to violence. Just awful.

  16. Nobody perished in the name of religion.
    A plane was shot down by politically motivated terrorists.
    Israel invades Gaza during a political war.

    War will always be here. Rejoice we live in peace, for now.....

  17. Senseless: irrational, mindless, anaesthetized, cold, deadened …. mindless murder of innocents! What is happening to humanity! I wish you, your family and fellow readers a quiet peaceful day Grace. xoJoy

  19. Sounds like we are all feeling the same. Wish there was an answer....

  20. It is shocking and saddening news. Some people have no sense of social morality.I can't understand waring parties have to involve women, children and innocent civilians. It is horrifying and scary. They can't even deal with the crash scene and bodies in a moral way. I feel so sorry for the families.

  21. Everything happens to us.
    Trouble, accident and incident also bad incident.
    If possible, we want to avoid them.
    And we want to live in peace.
    I want to live with a smile.

    PS: Good photo. Thanks.

  22. Wow Grace, I couldn't have said it any better. I had the news on yesterday while I was working around the house and finally had to turn it off. So sad! Take some time and stay safe.

  23. Very beautiful Grace. Add a bit of Spanish Moss hanging down from the trees and I'd think you took the photo in Florida.

  24. I hear you Grace. It was like a punch in the stomach.

  25. Yes. As Eric Idle said:

    Pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
    'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

  26. I wish the peace within hour photo could transcend above all the chaos in the world Grace. I have to believe it will.

  27. I sometimes wonder if we ( living on this planet) never LEARN from the history....
    There are so much tragedy..... but yesterday on the news I saw a palestinian man (on TV) who looked after his garden, his fruit and vegetables..... just like an ordinary passionate gardener. Outside, Gaza was just like we see on the news. His garden was his place to explore "normality."

    I met a couple from YOUR city yesterday and gave them your blog, with an update on what have happened "Down Under:)

    Do something nice, and remember when the time is right, we are many who look forward to hear from you and your city again:)

  28. You are right dear Grace! Kisses from Italy.

  29. I absolutely share your feelings, Grace. What is happening now it's such a big shame! Humans are hopeless.

  30. We all feel the same, Grace. Come back when you are ready and the meantime enjoy your beautiful Perth. Look forward to seeing more :).

  31. Yes, sometimes there just is no title, Grace. I was shocked, too. It makes no sense. And who will be responsible after all - no one. And even if so - it wouldn´t help those who´d had the awful loss.

  32. A tragedy made worse by the callous treatment of the rebels. Forget sanctions we need more war crimes brought before the courts and sentences handed out to those responsible.

  33. The recent events around the world are very disheartening. It seems crazy that we can't just all "get along". Is it really so hard to simply respect one another? Hope you are enjoying your time off.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I understand your sadness. The news is sickening these days. Love the photo though - serene and welcoming.

    ReplyDelete
  35. It seems "we" never learn a thing! Hope you get some peace of mind in spite of the world's turmoil.

  36. Unfortunately, it never does seem to stop.
    I try not to think much about it at this point. It just makes me angry.
    Hang in there Grace...

  37. It's a horrible old world we live in.
