The situation in Japan is too terrible to contemplate. The people affected have all had their lives changed profoundly. Water, at its most powerful, is the most destructive (and creative) force on the planet. Most of us many hundreds of thousands of kilometres away can only weep from a distance. I know only too well how devestating the impact of such an event can be, so please be compassionate, non-judgemental and supportive of everyone involved. Be gentle with yourself and others. Life is a gift, if you have it please make sure you are using it to give to yourself and others.
