This is actually
a good* sight,
as the fires
*if a black forest can be called a “good” sight
I only pray
in all the other places
still burning right now
and many other countries.
A beautiful Monday and week ahead, everyone!
I was sorry to learn about the fires in Greece, which I saw on television a few days ago. It’s good to hear that at least the ones in Athens have been put out.
Thankfully many other fires too. A few though still burn.
Such a terrible tragedy, dear Marina. Thanks goodness the fires are now out. Your photos, though really not happy, tell a story of hope and recovery. xxhugsxx
Ah, yes, my dear Sylvia. Hope is all we have. Most fires are out now but it’ll take a very long tine for people, animals and forests to heal.
That is great news, Marina, even though the scene still looks eerie. My heart breaks for all living creatures across the globe enduring flames. It’s devastating. Holding you in my heart. xoxo
Thank you, my dearest Lauren. It is heartbreaking to think of all those helpless beings.
All fingers crossed for you and the innocent souls!
Thank you, my dearest Alexandra. There are many volunteers out there, including trainers and vets scaning all the affected areas for wounded animals, with water and food.
I am so pleased to hear this news Marina! My thoughts continue to be with you.
Thank you, my dearest Rebecca. This means so much to me!
Huge hugs your way.
A happier Monday it is. Let up hope the fires remain out and don’t start up again. Sending hugs to you.
These are our prayers too, my dear friend.
Many more hugs amplified, to you!
So glad to see your report! We’ve see a few images of coastal areas being evacuated by ferries.
May everyone and all living things find shelter and safety.
Oh …it’s horrible, my friend. This is our hope too… for all living beings. All villages were evacuated in time but many stayed back to fight with firefighters.
Humans get so busy annoying themselves sometimes, they forget truly how desperate and hard things can get in the real world. Hopeful energy sent.
Thank you, my friend. Things are better now but so much damage and blackness left to deal with.
Fortune people there always seem to know how to rise above the ashes.
Paw waves in solidarity
What a relief that the Athens fires are out, and let’s hope other regions get their fires doused….
Oh, yes, my dear Sue. Those people are constantly in our thoughts and prayers.
Living in the dark, but it’s better than in the red of flame!
Stay out of the smoke. Love you, dahling!
Oh, without a doubt! I just can’t begin to fathom what all those people in Evia are going through, not only losing their homes, but breathing in all that thick black smoke above them for more than a week now!
Our skies are much clearer now eventhough we’re under one more heatwave.
Poor Evia & its people and animals!!!
Canada has never been so hot!!!
The entire country is in a heat wave.
In the 40’s in Toronto today.
I’ve never seen this.
The globe is becoming a furnace!
The only thing burning hotter is my heart. I still feel a passion fo life.
I adore you! Take care, dear Marina!
Our passion for life is the very last fire we should let go out! I adore you too, dahling! You too take care and stay cool! This too shall pass…

I’m relieved to hear that the Athens fires are out–although it looks as though there is still a pall of smoke above the city.
There is but most of it cones from Evia that is unfortunately still burning. Heartbreaking…
I’m sorry to hear that. I hope their fires are out soon as well.
So do I, my dear Liz and everywhere else!
There is too much suffering in this world . . .
Oh, if only…
I continue to pray for you and your country, Marina!
Thank you, my dearest Colleen. Prayers are needed for all those people still fighting fires everywhere in our world.
Wait a minute, you can’t fool me– the Black Forest is in Germany!! Sorry, bad joke. Very glad to hear this good news, sorry for all you and the people of Athens have been thru. Courage! Onward! 👍 💪 😊
Thank you, my dear friend. Courage and …onward to all those people still under ominous fires, everywhere.
This is certainly better news, Marina. 🤗💐🙋♂️
Yes, my dear Ashley! 🙏😊🙏
Unfortunately, today sees the publication of the IPCC report on climate change with a headline that is worrying: “code red for humanity”. I think all those involved in the COP26 conference in November, the leaders and politicians, need to walk through those ‘ghost’ forests, breathe in the smoke and get their hands and their shiny shoes dirty! Marina, sorry! The older I get the more rebellious I’m becoming! Keep well and stay safe, Ashley 🙋♂️💐💐🤗
You are not the only one! They’ll fill all the black forests with wind turbines, in the name of climate change and all will be …well! 🙏🌳
yep! fires love wind – And turbines catch fire – I think we need to think it out again
Yes! Also turbines need spaces to be planted to. Burned forests are ideal…
Beautiful photos of your black forest. Still sad, but such a relief that you not seeing red.
One more antithesis, or contradiction… but yes, a relief! Thank you, my friend!
