In Japan, there are five classical elements. Earth, water, fire, air, and heaven or "void". Three of them have rebelled today (yesterday in Japan). Earth, water, and fire. It wasn't even a month ago and Christchurch suffered a devastating earthquake. And today I woke to the news of Japan's tragedy, of an even worse magnitude. Tsunamis to boot. The nuclear reactors of three plants may be at peril and with them countless more people.
Thinking of Japan today. The iris is the symbol of hope. In the days to come we can hope that they can contain the damage and that there are few aftershocks and that things do not get worse.
Where will they go from here?
