The news from Japan following the natural, and man-made, disasters has and will continue to dominate the headlines for some time to come, as it should. The Japanese people, and those who have come from all over the world to try to help them, many risking their own lives, remain in my thoughts and prayers.
I have a potter friend in New Zealand, Peter, who, in his most recent post, supplied a link to the blog of another potter, Euan Craig, an Australian who now lives and works in Japan. Mr. Craig and his family live just north of Tokyo. I have spent some time this evening reading the posts which he published in the hours following the earthquake. I highly recommend them to you.
If you choose to read these, remember that, as terrible as things are for them, Mr. Craig and his family are among the fortunate ones.
I close with this thought: "Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." -- John Wooden
