Struggling


This image by Eduardo Recife struck a chord with me today.
Seems like a tough time to live in Victoria right now. I feel pretty tense and sad most of the time and the whole thing isn't over yet. It's hard to avoid thinking about the fires when all you need to do is look at the smoggy sky and see the weird red sunset and smell the smoke. Everyone knows someone who has been directly affected, my own little niece and her Mum had to evacuate last night...and its not over yet. After two months with no proper rain, it has to come soon right? Doesn't it?

You'd have to check on Eduardo's web-site by clicking on the link- I know a lot of his work is illustrations for other things so it may not have a title.
