Australians are looking for comfort right now. Bushfires causing terrible loss of life, and homes. Tapping into fears all too many people share on our volatile continent. The other end of the country is suffering with flooding.
I'm lucky to be sitting here wearing my favourite comfort slippers (fortunately the hot spell has finally broken), listening to my children play and DH communing with English soccer after we spent the day with my firefighter Mum.
We're safe, but sick with anxiety about those who are not.
