It feels slightly frivolous to post pretty pictures when so much of the world is in despair. It’s time for us all to help Japan recover. It may seem far away, but the earth is round and everything is interconnected. My heart goes out to the people, the earth and the ocean. Growing up in Sweden after Chernobyl, I vividly remember the aftermath of nuclear disaster and how long the effects persisted (still). We can only hope and pray for some form of recovery.
