On Japan

Japan shredded me.  It feels as personal as Haiti even though we don’t have family there.  As personal as knowing my friend Carrie was in Christchurch when the quake hit. 

My friend Dan said, “The earth is trying to kill us.”  He is right, of course. We are fragile humans in an evolutionary process that we cannot stop.  It is hubris to think otherwise. 

But every loss is painful. And paralyzing. 

My reaction to this type of tragedy is to hold tighter to those I love, to remember how happy I am in my life. I am happy in my life.  So incredibly happy.

I am grateful for my family, friends, followers.  Thank you for being part of this life with me.
