The consequences of the disasters in Japan have left me feeling very contemplative and rather maudlin. To what extent do we push our planet to keep us alive, at what cost to us, nevermind our future generations?
I can't help but believe that for each and every dig we make in the Earth's crust there must be a repercussion somewhere.
Newton even tells us that LAW III: To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction: or the mutual actions of two bodies upon each other are always equal, and directed to contrary parts.
I console myself with the wisdom of a Japanese Priest who said on Friday:
"I'm very sad! But I can do nothing. Only I pray Buddha for many victims."
Regardless of who you talk to or pray to I took some solace in the words that were left at the end of the article that I read:
"Today is both a first experience and a last experience. May we never tire of it."
I WILL look forward to tomorrow!
(And thankyou to those of you who have purchase a "Lost Geisha" print! Your generosity is appreciated by those who need it the most!)
