Regrowth - feeling overwhelmed and horrified seeing all the bushfire related posts from across Australia and needed to paint something positive.
I’m based in Perth, Western Australia, we’ve had a few significant fires here, but we’re away from the worst horror stories over east. I have friends and family living in rural areas, some who’ve had fires pass near by, and it’s scary.
We’ve lost so many human lives, more than half a million animals, hundreds of homes, 50,000 square kilometres burnt and the fire season isn’t even over yet. If you’re one of those people who still doesn’t believe that climate change is happening, please go fuck yourself. We are living it.
Spent a few days feeling hopeless and guilty that I can’t afford a big donation, but I’ve made small donations to the Australian Red Cross and Trillion Trees. A lot of Australian flora is fire resistant, I just hope enough has survived to regrow in the years to come.
