71. Twenty-twenty

Millions of hectares of fire. Billions of trees, shrubs, insects, burnt. Hundreds of millions of animals, ash. Homes, lives, livelihoods, lost. We’ve fallen, confused and hurt, into a time of fear and grief, anger and loss, heartbreak and change.

We’re reflecting, imagining and exploring with both sadness and joy.
