I have been watching with sadness the news reports of the vagaries of Mother Nature in various parts of the world over the past few weeks. These happenings offer a different perspective on life, all my problems fade into insignificance.
We have several special collectors in Queensland who have been much in my thoughts. Thrilled to receive an e-mail from one to say that the floods had missed their home and they are all well. I cannot imagine the feelings of those who have lost so much but that colonial resilience will, I am sure, carry them through.
