This particular quote by Thoreau exemplifies the relationship between our perspective and our principles - "If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."-Henry David Thoreau
If this post makes it to my blog, I know things are back to normal, so fingers crossed. If not, none of my "silent followers" will ever find out what happened to my blog as I will have to start another one, maybe not with blogger.com? Very challenging hat there are no obvious contact emails for blogger.com when support to fix errors is needed! Extremely frustrating and unproductive!

ABC News is providing invaluable suggestions on how to keep safe during this enormous cyclone. Set up a bunker/safe room in your house, padding the walls with mattresses and similar matterial. Ensure you have enough water for three days. Put on shoes, so that if you must walk on debris later, your feet are protected. Have enough food for a few days. Put sticky tape on your windows. During the cyclone, mobile telephones may not be working, and emergency workers may not be available; emergency workers need to keep safe too but will perform their invaluable work after the cyclone has passed. Keep yourself, your loved ones, neighbours and animals in your care, safe. Sending our love, positive vibes, thoughts, and prayers your way.
