Relating to the other side.

I am touched by the happenings in Japan.

As I sit her on our porch, the day is beautiful, Mom arrived last night and we are enjoying the birds singing, the breeze in the palm trees and Harley’s beautiful flowers. I wonder how we would feel if it was all gone in a moment.

I have been through tremors of earthquakes in Northern California, and many hurricanes here in Florida.  The fury of Mother Nature and the helpless victims have been on my mind.

I can’t wrap my thoughts around that sort of destruction and helplessness.  I was the same way with hurricane Katrina and the quakes in Haiti and Chile.  I tried to imagine the sense of loss.  How would I respond to losing my family, neighbors, home, and life as I knew it? I saw the desperation on the television but have no experience to compare it to.

All I can do today is say a prayer for them and thank God for the many blessings we enjoy today.
