Greetings from the Internet Cafe II and thank you for your concern about us after hearing the Japan news.
We live in the south of Japan, in Kyushuu and are far from the area of the main earthquake and tsunami. We are ok.
My husband works on a boat as some may know, which travels up and down the Japan coast, and thankfully he called from his location right away that he was out of the area of danger, and was fine. I think he is very brave though to be on a boat in the Japan sea, and he calls my daughter and I to reassure us that he is fine and that we shouldn`t worry. He has always been a very calm and peaceful presence for me and I realize it most at times like these when he takes everything in great stride. Just now he called that his boat is out in the sea, and that its safer to be in the sea than near land when a tsunami is still possible to approach.
Japan too is pretty amazing the way she handles a situation like what is happening now. The news is presented in calm voices and without a sensationalist kind of coverage, but with a sense of the courage that people have and concern for those of course who are not fine. Our area has warnings to evacuate around the sea coast, but we don`t anticpate something too strong as the first quake.
I continue to peel and slicing and grating those wonderful roots from the earth, Lotus Roots, I mentioned in the last post---baking them into muffins and sauteeing as burgers....I even make some batches of my creations to put outside for the moon, who has been also a re-assuring presence in the days and nights as he shines onto my sixth floor balcony and shares the cookies with me. I wonder that we need to thank the earth more, she is only human after all and does so much all the time to keep us nourished and safe...
I hope you are all well, my thoughts and prayers are with yours, with those who are in the affected areas. I wish that the aftershocks will not make more damage.
I look forward to visiting your corners.
