Today is both a sad day and one of celebration and empowerment – for two different reasons.

A sad day because one of our historic gems has fallen, and while it could not be prevented due to natural detioration, I’m sure it wasn’t helped when people kept on climbing on top of it…or detonating bombs beneath.

 

For those who are not based on the Maltese Islands, the Azure Window is one of the best things on the Island of Gozo. It was used as a backdrop of various movies, including Clash of Titans:

And Game of Thrones:

But last night, due to the high winds and force of the sea, the Azure Window fell…

 

But on a brighter note – today is also Women’s Day and thus also a day of celebration.

Women of all shapes and forms, from all backgrounds, should be celebrated for their achievements – which unfortunately are commonly disregarded.

So happy women’s day, and not just for our cis-ters!

And here is a photo of the azure window, which I had the pleasure to visit with one of the best women I know
