For those of us far away, the natural disasters first struck Japan more than a month ago, and we move on. But for the Japanese people, the reality of this tragedy continues to be as immediate as this very moment. I’d watched so many videos of these captured minutes of a waking nightmare, and I was deeply moved by the sorrowful images of people in fear and despair and a beautiful land struck by devastation. There was one image captured by a Japanese photographer of a man who’d lost his life, lying in the rubble of a deserted town. It was powerful, and it is an image I will not forget.
Today I wear red.
Cherry blossoms fill my heart;
Japan’s on my mind.
PS Thank you everyone for all the kind comments you left on my last post! It was so sweet of you; I’m really glad you enjoyed that outfit. x
