Things are feeling very subdued. I feel like everyone's a knocked-back shade of colour because of the floodings, the death, the loss. The widespread violence and unpredictability of nature.
I don't even know what to say at the moment. I can grapple my way through, and tell you that I feel shattered. And as a mum, I just feel incredibly moved by the story of Jordan Rice. It breaks me.
I want to help in bigger ways than just giving money. I want to be a body pushing mud out of the way so someone can restart their life. I want to do someone's washing. I want to give someone a warm bed, so they can feel a little safer, a little more comfortable. I want to help.
How are you feeling?
