Nature, yes, it can be harnessed, but as we’ve all witnessed over this weekend, through the continuing images and reports of destruction in Japan, nature can also be very, very destructive.
As teams of helpers continue to arrive in the stricken nation, our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Japan and their plight.
“Clouds come from time to time –
and bring to men a chance to rest
from looking at the moon.“
– Basho – 16th Century Japanese Haiku Poet
