My heart is so heavy for the people of Japan. I can’t even find the words to express how the situation makes me feel.
I chose to post this picture because I took it at the lake early on Saturday morning after I’d been glued to the TV all of Friday night, not able (actually, not wanting) to fully comprehend the horrible carnage I was seeing. A half a world away, people’s lives were upside down… outside my door, the epitome of calm.
I’ve never seen the fog so thick on the lake, and it lent a surreal air to the quiet of the morning. The heron on the edge of the point moving silently through the still waters, it was so very peaceful.
I felt so fortunate, and so very sad.
