Tumble and Twirl
Have you recovered from the seasonal madness yet? Today is the first day in many where I've sensed a degree of normality. I say this with a clear understanding that normality is very subjective.
My thoughts are saturated by media images of the devastation and the tsunami relief efforts in SE Asia; constant reminders of the fragility of human life on earth.
What can I really do about what's going on now. Is donating money really enough? Should we feel that we've done our part just because we've donated some cash or whatever. Does that really make things better or does it simply make us feel better about it? Whatever the answer to that question, I believe that things can never be the same again for any of us, however close or far we are from it all.
I don't want to come across as a cynical bastard. I'm just being sincere about my thoughts on what's going on around the Indian Ocean as I am bombarded by a media frenzy to capture the aftermath of the catastrophe and the tough circumstances thousands of people have found themselves in.
In truth, I am rendered speechless.
