Politics, Japan,wer'e back on the air, and pictures of more paintings

So much happening in the world and not much of it good according to our media reports.  One thing I am happy about is the ongoing discussion/debate around carbon taxes in Australia, and consideration of nuclear power in Europe.  I hope that the disaster in Japan won't be wasted as an example of what can happen when we rely on power from a source that is 'so powerful'.  We are never really in control, its all an allusion and as I keep thinking to myself, nature is not a silent partner in our experiment...

We are now back on the air, there was a big flood event early in the week in our region.  We were cut off by flood waters in all directions for a couple of days and we had no power for over 28hrs.  Our place is okay but when I drove through town yesterday, the trail of destruction following the river breaking its banks at record peak levels was a little humbling to see.  Fortunately, no lives lost, just lots of damage and communities really getting behind each other...we human beings arent all bad:):)

I managed finally to take some more photos of my paintings, so I thought I would put a couple here for you to have a look at:):)

Have great day - I'm off to uni now....
