Time Off

Just a quick post to let you know that I am taking a few days off, since June 13 I have had only three days off and the bottom line is that I am burnt out, from a month in Gaza to the war between Israel and Hezbollah it has been a totally emotional and physical drain in the heat of summer.
Standing alone on the roof during the siren raid this morning, i could of collapsed with exhaustion. It is not that I cannot sleep but it has reached a stage that I cannot sleep enough to bring my body back to normal.
I have no where to live and when I check out of the hotel in the morning I am homeless again. So I have to deal with that issue and my dog Molly whom I have to get back to Australia and my daughter BJ. To go thru what I have had to deal with on a personal level in the last few months let alone a war has been so hard.
At the end off the day we are all human and working at this level in these conditions I just want to find a cool corner and get my life back in order and then in a few days I will be back doing what I do best, covering the worst of man and hoping to find an inspiration.
I have only one wish at the moment and that is for my friends Olaf & Steve
Be strong
Mal
leaving the north tomorrow morning

Not sure what one needs to do to recover, rest and re-balance after an experience like you have had of recent...

But I do hope you find your center of emotional balance again....and that you replenish your soul...

Warm and peaceful thoughts with hopes you find a way for Molly to get to your daughter :-)

Enjoy your time off! You deserve a break. Some peace and saftey will be a nice change, too. Good luck with the homeless issue. Not sure what you are referring to but I hope you solve that problem ASAP.

Why not send yourself back to Australia with the dog?
Let someone else have a go at the war and get out in one piece and get back to normality in Australia?
