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.

Well said Sue:) I have also been thinking about the aftermath - not just the loss of lives which, of course, is terribly sad, but also about the potential problems with the nucleur power plants - perhaps it's even more evidence to pursue green power.

Exactly my sentiments Sue . The video of the huge wave rolling was so beautiful but when it crashed on land it had such demonic fury . Truly this is most devastating .

Yes, there's no doubt we humans as a whole are slow learners*!*
