Memories and Thoughts of Japan

March 17, 2011

Winter in Sapporo, Japan on my 2002 trip.

Like many people, I’ve been following the coverage of devastation happening in Japan. It is difficult to watch.

Having visited and lived in Japan in the past, the images are difficult to see. Japan is the country of my birth and my mother’s homeland. The majority of my friends and family are south of where the damage has occurred but it is still heartbreaking to watch as news of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear threats continue to unfold.

My heart and mind are with Japan.
