An AP news report on June 19, 2013:
"VIENNA – A flash flood unleashed by a major thunderstorm has inundated the Austrian village of Hallstatt, which has been awarded special status by the U.N. because of its unique beauty.
Wednesday's storm turned the placid village creek into a torrent that flooded the village square, tearing up cobble stones in its wake. Houses and a hotel are partially under water. State-run broadcaster ORF says 30 people had to be evacuated by ladder from the first floor of a building."
Here is a link Loner posted yesterday, with many photos. Fortunately, the industrious people of the area have been hard at work to restore everything to its original strength and beauty.
As a knot appears unexpectedly in a thread,
so disappointment blocks the smoothness of life.
If a few deft strokes can untangle the skein,
life continues evenly.
But if it cannot be corrected,
then it must be quietly woven into the design.
Thus, the finished piece can still be beautiful ...
even though not as perfect as planned.
January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.
