No flippancy today. Of course, what has happened in Japan has nothing to do with the closeness of the Moon, or the anger of a deity or any other obscure human imaginings, it was just the planet doing what it does - shifting and stirring as all living things do.
I have never visited Japan but I always found the Japanese spirit and work ethic enviable and the country seems to be a very beautiful place. What has happened over the past few days is tragic on a scale I don't think I've ever previously witnessed.
We are all so tiny.
