Good morning from a shaky and stormy Hastings day.
An update – we are having hundreds of aftershocks. Here in Hastings I am only feeling the stronger ones now. Down in Wellington my daughter is getting freaked out by them all. Wellington is closer to the epicentre so that the aftershocks are definitely stronger. The biggest worry now is that a bad storm is heading towards us. Just what we don’t need.
A big thank you to all who were concerned for me yesterday. I didn’t realise that our earthquake made headline news around the world. I really do appreciate all your loving thoughts.
So while looking at images for my post today I was thinking about all the photos that have been posted on all the damage. Our Prime Minister, John Key has estimated that the repair costs are in the billions. The damage is more widespread this time, than the big one in Christchurch in 2011.
So I thought of tools. Well actually my embroidery scissors. I know that they will not even come close to repairing the damage.
With this second photo I added a brick overlay. We will rebuild our country brick by brick.
And sew our country together with threads holding communities together.
