With temperatures in the high 30’s or 99 – 102 Fahrenheit, Bushfire season has reared its dragonlike head and now the news is full of reports, and blazes. One of these is just across the railway tracks from where I am right now. As I got home yesterday the smoke was thick and lay near the ground and bit the back of my throat. Firefighters worked through the night and contained the blaze, but it is still not out and surprise surprise, they suspect arson.
I am sorry, I simply do NOT understand what makes a person do that knowing the risk it brings over lives of those who volunteer and fight it and even the potential loss of property, and memory items.
It is late this year but that does not mean the fiery dragon does not have enough heat of days ahead to dance through appointed lives.
