All to sea
The heavy downpour on Monday night washed away to sea all the rubbish in drains – empty cans and bottles, household refuse, discarded old furniture and broken items dumped there – which had been piling up for months. Of course the tonnes of litter will end up polluting our pristine beaches and beautiful reefs.
Maskless few
Most of those who attended the opening of the 2021 Legal Year in Port Moresby on Monday wore face masks in compliance with public health safety rules. Pity that some chose not to wear one. It would have made the picture complete if they all did.
No case
It has been nine years since we witnessed the worst sea disaster in the country off Finschaffen in Morobe where 172 lives were lost. We wonder when, or if, the Government will pursue the case again in court.
Bad start
Not really the start to the school year Miss Six was looking forward to, with the wet weather and confusion over transport. Cannot blame her for electing to “sleep in’ on her second day. Mum waited and waited.
Thought for today
If you rearrange the letters in the word “depression”, you can have “I pressed on”. You current adverse situation is not your final destination.

“When unexpected things happen in your life and you not only accept it but also change it to be normal again, trust me, you are the type of person who never gives up on anything.”
