the outraged sea…

Happy Beach has been roaring the last couple of days – not letting me close to her at all. This could be due to the build up of an upcoming Coptic Storm, effects of the new moon or a general rage against the stories of dire human suffering connected to the Mediterranean.

The trafficking of people seeking a better life across her depths is not a new phenomenon at all but I do hope that the current media spotlight will force people with actual power to remove their blinkers and look for sustainable solutions to problems that we have contributed to.

Enough wallowing.
