overwhelmed..

It’s been a subdued week in Melbourne & one that’s been very hard to work through. My family & friends were not in any of the badly hit areas but still it’s impossible not to be affected by all the sadness that’s around.
Like many others i haven’t really felt like posting (or working actually) & i found myself watching endlesss news footage of fire storms, piles of twisted corrugated iron, & people hugging & crying. It was only when i was watching the news did i feel like my inside & outside were at the same pressure – when i tried to get on with making jewellery it was like pushing an upturned bucket into a tub of water, a relief to just stop pushing.
I’m doing what i can to help but she’s right, it doesn’t seem enough.
Thankfully there are many great bloggers, like Pip, who post regular updates of ways to help.
