What can I possibly say?  Not a whole lot.  It’s more about the way I’ve felt all week, overwhelmed by sadness, startled, once again, at the fragility and precariousness of it all.  And feeling helpless.

The best article I’ve read about the crisis in Japan is by William Pesek at Bloomberg.  The picture he paints reminds me of our city in the days after 9/11- city covered in soot and debris, the man still selling coffee out of his cart on the corner, children walking to school.  The sun still rises every morning, life goes on, people do their best to meet the day in unthinkable circumstances. To see that article go here.
