Rain and tears
Driving rain again today. Browsing the Internet I stumble upon Beirut Daily Photo. It opens in April 2006 with carefree snapshots of a happy city: balloons, cafés, monuments and beaches. It ends on 31st of July with (professional) photos of the bombings and injured people being pulled from the rubble. The site is now closed, the author has been evacuated. As yet, he hasn't returned. Viewing this, I reflect on how lucky we are, we who live in safe parts of the world, that our daily photos reflect such an easy life. Peace seems such a luxury now… May you treasure it and help maintain it in every way you can.
