Sitting here this morning, aware and grateful for even the most elementary of blessings:
--clean water from the tap
--an abundance of food on the shelves
Glaringly aware of the near-impossibility of wrapping my brain around the scale of devastation in Japan. Consider this photo:
Besides my being nearly completely unable to conceive of a massive ship perched on a breakwater, there is the question of how exactly does a city/country cope with this amount of chaos? And then there is the fact that this photo of a single thing is but a fraction of the disaster.
This is a brutal reminder of our vulnerability, as residents of the planet. Nature is without mercy, and cannot know mercy. I stand in awe.
