Moving Mountain

As you wind down the week’s activity, take a moment or two to pause and admire Mount Etna, which is undergoing a spectacular series of eruptions (click for larger images).

Remarkable.

You can look at a live webcam and make your own snapshots like these (which are from Amara – thanks!) at this link. Who needs Friday night movies with drama like this going on live?

This all puts me in mind of the fact that the places where I spent most of my childhood were completely erased by a volcano. All gone, except in my memory and those of others. So looking at these photos gives me mixed feelings…. those of loss, and at the same time feelings of being happy to be reminded to reflect on the memories from time to time in order to keep them alive.
