Lots to think about

It has been well over two months since my last post, but I have been busy over that time. We are busily planning a lovely restful retreat at Dwellingup for later this year. Keep an eye on this space for more details soon, plus the new classes being added to our 2009 retreat in Sydney!

With all the tragedy in Melbourne being on the news, my heart went out to all those in flood ravaged Queensland. Please remember them if you are thinking of making donations. Check here to see how you can donate
These people have also lost homes, pets, livestock, business and unfortunately loved ones. They also face a long haul of rebuilding ahead of them.

I guess the whole world is now aware of the Victorian bushfires and our hearts go out to all affected both in Victoria and Queensland.
My daughter Courtney is on the student council at our local primary school, and on Friday they raised over $800 for the bushfire relief. With just one days notice and being a small school, I thought this was a massive effort.

I will do a more 'art' related post later this week.
Thinking of all my friends who have faced and survived Mother Natures fury!

Hi Jo.
Lovely to see you post, and your concern for the flood victims too. But umm...isn't your retreat in Sydney?

Jacky said...

The retreats in Sydney and Dwellingup this year will be really exciting, I am looking forward to both.
