Smoke of many deaths

On our street, looking through the parched Jacaranda, towards Parramatta shrouded in bushfire haze.

Thousands of images like this are going up on social media as those of us who are outside the fire zones (for now), inhale the trees blown into the city and suburbs – trees that have burnt to the tiniest particles, small enough to enter our blood stream. I can’t grasp how terrifying and exhausting it must be closer to the fires for the residents and the firies. Australia knows bushfires, I was brought up on the stories, but this onslaught needs a bigger set of scales. Wanting to hear from the most senior in Government… who appears to be stuck on planet Usual.
