My heart goes out to the Japanese people, who are going through horrific times, and to all those who have had to suffer the after -effects of natural disasters--so many places and so many countries in the last 2 years or so.
These natural disasters remind us, so powerfully, how little we are. We are made aware, once again, that Mother Earth is much more big and powerful than we give her credit for and all life is puny and helpless in front of her wrath. Humans are the only life which think that they can tamper with, tame, use, take advantage of all that nature gives us. So Mother Earth reminds us of our frailty now and then.
