Todays thoughts are for Christchurch. Such a beautiful city still lays wasted by earthquakes. A stark reminder, as we walked the streets after our conference snapping photos, on how lucky we are not to have suffered the losses in lives, buildings, livelihoods and broken dreams. How lucky we are not to have to live amongst the rubble, dust and memories every day for three years.
But they are getting on with it - the rebuild. Although the graunching machinery sounds more destructive to the ear, there are busy sounds, not so unpleasant. These photos are some of those I took today. So no real sense of connectedness in this post, fellow educators, just a reminder to celebrate the lives we have.
