my heart goes out to christchurch

By Alison Campbell 24/02/2011

I haven’t managed to settle to blogging for a few days – like everyone else I know, I’ve followed the dreadful events in Christchurch and wondered what on earth I could do (settling on dispensing hugs both real & virtual, offering beds to friends & family if they need to leave home, and making a donation to the relief fund – I would urge anyone who can afford to, to do this). There are many others who’ve already made substantial efforts around communicating about the quake itself & its immediate aftermath (here, and here, and here, for example); I can offer nothing there. And somehow at the moment I just can’t bring myself to write about more mundane, everyday, normal things. So apologies, but it might be a few more days before I get back to the biology.
