Find some safety and quiet for a bit, and company.

Very eloquent indeed... [In reply to] Can't Post

sums up all that one could wish for those involved in the disaster, near or far. All I can add is that my thoughts are with them as they go through this nightmare.

It's on The Hobbit board [In reply to] Can't Post

This is a thread to support our friends in Christchurch, but there is a thread discussing the possible effects on the movie on The Hobbit board.

Yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

We have power, water, toilet, internet, and food, etc. Even the fish and chip shop is open. And much to my relief my parents have moved to riccarton from north new brighton today.

For the Repose of Rhys [In reply to] Can't Post

May Rhys find peace and healing on his journey beyond us. And may all the best of him live on in those lives that he touched.

Life is beautiful and dangerous! Beware! Enjoy!

I think you're talking about [In reply to] Can't Post

This post
It was a thread, but it was deleted and reposted in the main Hobbit/earthquake thread

..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

Oh Pioneer! [In reply to] Can't Post

As others have said, do leave the area if you possibly can. I cannot imagine how upsetting it all is. I'm so sorry.

But I have to say - your post at first deeply saddened me but then you made me smile at the end with your hedgehogs remark! Teehee. Nice to know that nature goes on even in the midst of such carnage, don't you think? Smile

Hang in there. Heart

Your eloquence is inspiring [In reply to] Can't Post

What a lovely sentiment. Rhys himself would have been impressed. While he studied to be a journalist, he loved to write poetry.

He was a gentle and kindly young man.

Now that I did not know [In reply to] Can't Post

I knew what fault line California had, and that they've been studied a while, but I did not realize that Christchurch's was completely unknown until last year, and I did not realize they had a reverse fault (which plate is sliding under which?) Though, I just looked up a map of plates, and, yea, it looks like the Australian plate and the Pacific plate meet smack dab on the middle of New Zealand, somewhere around South Island.

One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them

late with my wishes but glad all are all right [In reply to] Can't Post

The first thing I thought of, like most of us outside the area, was Torn people who might be there. Just adding my thoughts to everyone elses!

{{{Sunflowr}}} [In reply to] Can't Post

I am so sorry to read about your losses. It is bad enough once, but three times. You will be in our thoughts. I know words aren't enough, but as I found out when my son died, the caring words really help!
