Travelling lightly

Over the last few days, Perth lost 72 homes to fires (with significant damage to 30 more). Some evacuees told me of the moment they knew they had to leave at very little notice. What could they grab? They decided to leave everything – it wasn’t important as long as they had each other. As it happens, they were abler to return to their home which was unscathed. What freedom, however, to be so unattached to material things, even those which must carry some significance. What freedom to travel through the world so lightly.
