if we had a window into each individual life,


the tragedy of what has happened in japan, and its consequent ripple effect,
would be, if possible, even more devastating

to all those living in, or with connections to this beautiful country and its precious people,
please know we are holding you in our spirits and in our hearts.

A very thought-provoking post. On a more mundane level, I'd love to live in this house.

The dimensions of this tragedy literally take my breath away...you have, I think, written what many of us have held in our hearts...

So maybe there has been some improvement since 1945...

The world is leaving me a trifle speachless just at the moment. My heart is overful, and my brain empty.

I am only too happy not to have TV. I am shocked to the core even without seeing images of despair, horror, sadness, fright.

Trying to imagine happier things through that window.

If we had such a window I honestly feel we would be overwhelmed. We have been to Japan a few times and visited Sendai two years ago. The sight might be unbearable today.

Kate said...

A fitting tribute. The devastation is difficult to contemplate, but the images are worth a thousand words. I no longer can watch it on the news. I cannot imagine what that country is going to do now. As well as mourning with them, I hope that many, many countries continue the aid months from now.

I couldn't have used better words! A beautiful immage as well!

Beautiful bright red to 'frame' your wonderful words, Brattcat. My thoughts are with the Japanese people since day one too. And, on another level, with the poor people in Libya, and with the poor people in Ivory Coast that no one talks about, and with... What a world!

Beautiful words and a truly lovely photo. The devastation in Japan, the loss of life, the tragedy of so many lives gone adrift. Too too awful and almost incomprehensible. And watching how the Japanese conduct themselves with such dignity, good manners - no, amazingly good manners - is a lesson to all of us.

I love this colorful window and the possibilities of what might be within. Wonderful photograph!

Beautiful picture-- I love that bright red trim. People who paint their houses bright colors have my admiration-- that takes courage! My house is a very boring gray. We do have a purple door, though.

I love your words. The CDP community makes our world so much smaller.
