Today was the worst day so far. The huge flames could be seen at a distance in the sunlight. After a little futile ranting and a sob, she decided to rest her knee... which had yet to heal from the fall. As she lay between cool crisp sheets she could not help wonder about grace. She felt surrounded by danger, near and far yet she graced with the privilege of safety. Life seemed a game of chance and she could not help but wonder why was she so fortunate. Like a cat with 19 lives. Her fear was surely her fortune would run out soon. When danger came knocking, would she be as brave as she is grateful in this moment? She thought of the people in South Africa who had lost everything to the fires. How does one recover from such a thing? As the helicopters and planes dropped sea water on the gapping wounds, she thought of the rumours that they were the culprits. All she wanted was to head into the forest at night with a shot gun and a pair of night vision glasses. But she shall not, she cannot, her knee will not let her. She is just a middle aged wannabe.
