The Sea Within

My Aussie brethren have been battling a heinous sea monster these last few days.

It can be hard to really absorb the magnitude of natural disasters, particularly when they occur far away and do not impact on you personally. The sheer amount of water in Queensland right now is staggering to behold. When was the last time you canoed through a McDonald's restaurant? This is Brisbane, third largest capital city in Australia.

Ghost town indeed. Good to see people keeping their sense of humour, even in circumstances like this.

If you would like to help out, you can donate to support the people here and the animals here.


  1. you know, I'm obviously not one for nationalism, but I've been getting all misty and teary-eyed watching how incredibly brave and selfless people have been through this. You really don't see this very often, or in many other countries. So yeah, fingers crossed the water just ceases soon and that the cleanup can well and truly begin.

  2. I know what you mean. Not quite at the 'permanent Aussie flag tattoo' stage, just feeling good about people doing good.
