What to say?
History has a was of saying . . . . "Don't forget!"
Victoria has been suffering from the onslaught of many major bushfires . . . & some of these on our doorstep & close to places & people who know . . . Its been a case of everyone knows or knows of someone affected . . . we have our list . . . . homes gone . . . . people lost forever . . . our fauna & flora devastated . . . . I have heard that wonderful Dorothy McKellar poem "Our Sunburnt Country" many times over the last week & it pictures perfectly the terror in words . . . . for what can you say!
Its time not to forget . . .
We drove through some of the outer areas of Kilmore where the smoke is still think . . . . days & days after . . . . a spooky feel hanging in the air . . . . echoes of voices . . . even the animals seemed to want to 'talk about it' . . . .
