A little bit tired and a lot sad!


It's been one of those weeks! I'm happy and very relieved to say my sister is on the mend and should be home within the next few days. I'm beyond sad at the world events over the last few days, from climate change denial to terrorist atrocities, when will it all end! Things that make me smile are most welcome as did the sight of the laid-back, sleepy-eyed hairy skate boarder with his undulating :) pink background found in one of the many lanes off Beaufort Street. Merci beaucoup Caroline for brightening up my, and hopefully your day! Happy Monday, Take care and stay safe.. P.s. big catch up today..

  2. Dear G; California is the 6th biggest economy in the world, and Gov Brown is in China as I write this speaking with them about climate change. We are not stopping: states, corporations, cities, citizens. We will survive the horrible person residing in our white house! Look at all the helpers, all the carers. Yes. Terror is evil in the world. But I refuse to stop finding joy in the good people everywhere in the world. We are the majority. We will prevail. Bless you my dear friend <3

  4. Ja die Nachrichten sind meist alles andere als gut oder positiv aber richtig wir sind die Mehrheit und werden uns durchsetzen.
    Und zur Aufhellung finden wie Bilder.

  5. Grace, that is a fine, cheerful mural. Could not agree with you more about the World condition. Just remember, just because ONE leader denies science and climate change does not mean a majority of Americans agree with him. Glad to hear your good news.

  10. I'm so with you in your sadness over world events. My friend Mo in London lives in a flat overlooking Borough Market. I've heard from her and she is okay but has been unable to get back to her flat yet. I was glad to hear from her and to have all my friends in London accounted for. The world seems to have gone mad!
