One thousand days ago our lives changed for ever,
so much so that it's really hard to remember what life was like before,
what on earth did we worry about??
1000 DAYS SINCE THE FIRST EARTHQUAKE
We had no idea that this was so at the time,
we thought we had escaped the bullet, no one had died
we thought we were going to be ok.
We tried to get on with life, amidst hundred of aftershocks,
to keep our wee painting business running and find work.
We didn't know the worse was yet to come.
We didn't know that the fault lines beneath our city (that we didn't know were there)
were only just beginning their activities.
I have written about all this many many times,
but today I just want to stop for a moment
and think, 1000 days... wow!
Somehow we are still here.
We are still living.
We are still functioning.
Sometimes we feel a bit crazy,
sometimes we feel sad.
But 1000 days people! it's amazing.
