May last year

This is a photo I took in Christchurch nine months ago of a group of student musicians entertaining the passers-by on a crisp and sunny May day.

After watching on television the horrific scenes taking place in Christchurch today, I pulled out the file of images I had taken on our family trip to that lovely city last year. I can't help wondering if the people I captured with my camera are safe and well tonight.

I find it very difficult to come to terms with what has happened to our near neighbours.  Here in Brisbane we are coping pretty well with the after-effects of the flood.  Our buildings are still standing, if a little worse for wear.

I pray that the good people of Christchurch will have the strength to recover from this second major earthquake to hit them in a few short months. It's heart-breaking.
