Has it been a year already?

On Monday, we sat and had a lovely picnic on the banks of the Brisbane River in the shade of GOMA. This time last year, we would have been under metres of brown, debris filled water. 

Has it been a year already? We were personally untouched by the tragedies of January 2011, but I remember vividly the sadness and pain I felt as I watched my city being destroyed. I remember crying with Anna Bligh and applauding her tough, human leadership. I remember the disbelief and shock I felt as I saw that blue car bounce through the tsunami-like waves in Toowoomba. I remember sobbing for the Rice family.

So, one year on, as my family and I played in the awesome Yayoi Kusama's  'Look Now, See Forever' rooms at GOMA, I did have a little chat with the Universe... let this year be different. 

Let this year continue as it has begun- bright, safe, and filled with colourful spots....
