I have to do this quickly because I don't know how long I;ll have electricity- it is mostly down

I'm ok, the dogs ok and the house is ok, the boys are in Spain

everything else is black and burning
around here there is not much left for the fire to burn, but there are a couple of places where they can't control the fire, tall pine trees etc so the planes are flying over all the time

the fire has gone south towards Athens

what I really want to say is that it is wonderful to find your comments and support they made a good "place" so thank you all very very much for your concern, I will thank everyone personally when this is over

oh the olive tree you see in other posts is full of birds- we are a little green pocket
it is so sad

Manya, I am making a piece of felt, a blanket. I'd like to send it to you or auction it to raise funds to help your community. Please email me or leave a comment advising the best way I can do this, is there something already in place that I can donate to?

I am so sorry for the devastation of your homeland. Hugs and kisses xxx

Manya, I also saw reports on the catastrophe in your land - I feel so sorry for it!

Manya, i'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. in 1983 we were in the same situation and our house burned. the worst thing is that such fires don't generally light themselves and the three main causes are known to be men, women and that order.

i wish you well.

Jasmine said...

Manya, I see your olive tree and its birds as a haven, a glimmer of hope. Not all is lost.

The felting forum web link is

Speak soon.

Manya, kind offers of donations are starting to come in. Including myself I count around 8 pieces of arts and crafts for your exhibition. I am sure more will follow wen we can update people of the arrangements. I hope all is well for your family xx

jasmine, ladka, india thank you all so much for your kind words and support. a wildfire is a terrible thing, and when there is suspicion of foul play anger accompanies the sorrow.

yvette, it is so good to see your comments! yes, we are all lucky. also the boys were away, so they didn't feel the horror, only the aftermath
