    where I live you wouldn't think this could happen..

    right now homes getting evacuated... literally strangers opening their homes to strangers... there is much faith restored in the kindness of humanity in this time of despair.... their are some beautiful people in this world...

    a few of my friends tonight taking refuge while their homes are in danger... the community are opening their doors..

    the fire fighters are doing an amazing job.... amazing in fact...

    I just wanted to share this just to say you never know when such catastrophes could come your way. mostly always unexpected... sometimes the meaningless bullshit that we take to heart is nothing compared to life's real trials... no matter how big or small such disasters, just shows how small we are... IMO we are always vulnerable...embrace what you have today...dont take anything for granted.. stay safe

    literally within arms reach of where I live...

    PREPARE TO LEAVE: Castaways Beach/Sunrise Beach/Sunshine Beach/Noosa Springs/Noosa Heads/Noosa Junction (part of the Peregian fire) bushfire as at 8.25pm Mon 9 Sept
