100 Word Challenge – Week#70

December 26, 2012


Floods on the railway track

Twas  the night before Xmas; in fact for several days the south west of England had endured torrential rain and continual flooding.  While weather for the rest of the country was mixed and sometimes pleasant; the west was at times in severe danger; homes were flooded and families evacuated.  Travelling on the motorway was advised against and the use of trains was suspended, and would remain so even if the rain stopped. Meanwhile my daughter in Rio prays for rain and yesterday travelled  to the mountains to find shade from the harmful sun.  Life seems so unfair at times; may we honour this diversity.

    So true. Here is Israel we rejoice in any rainfall and eagerly watch the Sea of Galilee as it rises during the winter – the more the better. The I read about the floods in SW England and realise that any extreme is harmful.

    If only we could share the world’s water evenly and fairly it would be a much better place.

    Today I wok up at 7 AM in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My first impression was that the world has humans for the terrance or for any place…..too hot, without wind and a lot of people on the streets. Maybe to go out of the sun!!

    I have mixed feelings about water, too. Of course we need it and it provides life. But it can be invasive if not life-threatening as well. A dichotomy, as much of life is.

    This is my first trip to this group. My link should be up soon, I hope. Stop by and say hi.
