Japan - earthquake

Posted by Claudia Moser on 4:24 PM
There are no words to describe what is going on in Japan, earthquake, tsunami, pain, death. Nature is powerful and now we observe, from a fair distance, the effects of its rage.

Nevertheless on a personal level I am relieved that my friend, Lary, living in Tokio is OK, her kids are safe. I am so glad, trying to reach her on the phone did not work though!

Strangely enough, the media is full with information, somehow the pain is part of our day to day life and in a way I find this live-updates a bit respectless. These entries like
10.20 A new wave hit region X

Why do we need to know? We should just pray that as many as possible are safe and that the ones who survive will not suffer too much.

Thinking of you Lary & family.



I'm so glad that your friend is safe and sound. It is horrendous these tragedies that are happening around the world, isn't it? I so agree with you about the lack of respect by the media, and I actually wrote a post about it after the New Zealand quake.

Yes, somehow I don't appreciate this heartless approach. Anyway now we can only wait!

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
