Lovely memorial.
I hope Christmas was peaceful for you and those that need that peace.

That's a beautiful reminder Julie. I had friends who were there and luckily narrowly escaped with their lives. Very narrowly. They have moved along now and have put it behind them... And they still live by the sea... funny how she heals as much as she destroys.
My my - you do get around! ;-)

I remember this so well. My first Christmas in Scotland. I celebrated early with friends as one of our dearest was about to fly out to Phuket. Last minute snow delayed her flight out of London. It saved her life. I'll never forget watching the devastation as the news came in. The incredible loss of life and tales of miraculous survival and near misses. Many here lost loved ones, too. And even more rallied to do whatever they could to help. The scale of it though. How could we ever forget. Lovely tribute, Julie, so very poignant. Lizzy

You were there just after? Woah! I remember seeing the news on the television in the Latin 1/4 in Paris. I thought I must have flown right over it on my way there.. That left me with a very weird feeling.

Chatelaine said...

Such a tragedy. Hopefully there's been healing in the past few years.

Those who lost family and friends are in my thoughts.
