The Frailty & Fragility of Creation

I took this photo of the Azure Window on Gozo in October 2015.  Now it is gone - severe storms destroyed it.

Whilst visiting I bought some painted pebbles for gifts from woman who sold them to raise funds to feed the island's ferral cats.  The one I kept - which now seems all the more precious - depicts the Azure Window with a beautiful clear sky and a mill pond sea.

Nature is beautiful and fragile, and wild and destructive.

I think of those who made their living on that beach, selling nick-nacks and the like, and wonder what the future holds for them (and the cats) now.
