...to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free....

pausing for a moment

I'm having trouble thinking about much else today.

                                                                                                                                                                              Matt Dunham / AP
                                Survivors keep warm under covers in a school gymnasium being used as a shelter in Ofunato, Japan                                                                                                                       

Can we share ideas about what people can do to help?



  1. Red Cross seems to be the big one here- donations.
    I am constantly thinking of Japan and the people. Wishing I could up and go to help.....

  2. I am sure all donations would be more than welcome. Here is another suggestion from the heart posted by one of my sweet Flickr friends...

  3. I just don't know why we are so fixed on this sadness. Every day, my heart just aches for these people. Their images are there every time we open up the internet or turn on our tv. It is a good thing I believe. It certainly makes me realize how blessed we are. How vulnerable we can be to mother nature. So many struggle in so many ways, I cannot imagine their pain. It just breaks my heart so I pray. I pray. and I pray some more. Your blog is so beautiful and your post and pictures are so peaceful. Thank you. It really helps to see such beauty when there are so many storms. :)

  4. It continues to break my heart.

    Red Cross.

  5. Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! I have made some cranes, and will send photos along. I'm going to add Doctors Without Borders http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/. And, as has been said before, whatever prayer you are accustomed to.
