running round in circles...

Wow. Been almost a month since I wrote something down.

Life is so darn crazy! And so much happens so fast.

I'm so sad about the happenings in Japan. So much destruction and loss of life - so hard to comprehend. Nuclear power? Never much liked it to begin with. Now we're all in danger. Ugh.

As I listen to my daughter practicing the piano, I can hardly imagine life without her. But the realization that life is so tenuous, I'm sure that a mom in Japan has said the same thing about her daughter-that she may have just lost. Unbearable. So, what's a mother to do? Just love the tar out of her girl. What would that mom do? Just love the tar out of her girl. We would do the same.

I'm not a religous woman. Thank god. But I am a spiritual woman. I as much as I'd like to rationalize what's happened, I can't. I don't know what the heck we're supposed to learn or understand from the sadness of what's just taken place, all I can do is offer up hope, peace and strength to all that's left. The Japanese do live on a tenuous tectonic plate. Earthquakes are a part of their life. It's just when it happens, life can really suck. I'm so sorry for their loss.
