after the aftermath

Now and then there are things that happen which are almost beyond the comprehension of people not involved.  I watched yesterday the videos of the tsunami moving relentlessly across the  Japanese landscape at such an amazing speed, taking huge buildings, cars, anything in its path.  It was awesome, in the true sense of the word.

there truly is nothing to say beyond that.

  1. It would be really sad to see your posessions and in some cases family being washed away. Its hard to imagine such power. I also am responding to your last posting.

  2. in an event like this, I would also imagine that even the people involved, if they survive, must be in a state of shock, denial, emotional devastation...in some instances entire towns have been scraped right off the earth. Everything in them, gone.

    It's just such power, as you say, that's hard to imagine, and the worst of it is, there is no malice in that power, any more than there is in a tornado, and that's the scary part, you can't blame the tsunami for being itself, even though we want to, at some level.
