My heart is with the people of Victoria who are suffering devastating losses as a result of the bush-fires.
This evening, dear friends told me they'd found out that their son ('unaccounted for' for 36 hours) is safe. He chose to stay inside as the fire approached: miraculously, it jumped over his house and left him unscathed. His neighbour's house was burned down and further up the road, two people died in their car whilst trying to get away.
There are times when words are inadequate. This is one of them.
May rain come soon as balm.
