Sitting in the city!!!

Today we went into the city for the first time!!!
So so sad, the airy silence of a city stopped in it's tracks was ever present.
It is so hard to get your head around, we sat by the Avon river in the sun with the only noise being the little thumps of the acorns dropping to the ground.
How do you process this?
We are seeing the slow and painful demise of our wonderful shops, but here I sit smiling at acorns dropping! Go figure!!!
That may be the answer, just keep seeing the simple things! V

  1. So sad - I can't even imagine. It's weird knowing that, in a way, we'll never be able to come home.

  3. Hi Vanessa and Warren,
    Yesterday I heard Warren speaking on the radio, about your beautiful old building being under threat of demolition. I am so sorry to hear that, it was such a significant part of Christchurch's history...and a place of many very happy memories for me. Sending you both much love, I think of you often. Love Katherine xxx
