A lovely thought provoking image here Ellen, stunning in fact. The Japanese have been fantastic here. They sent over a search and rescue team and now we will be returning the favour. They will need help from all over the world.

It is so sad that this had to happen, that so many are suffering. Certainly our prayers will be with them. A beautiful picture, love the mood, the shape of the legs and the lights fasinate me, so gorgeous. A work of beauty in word and picture my dear friend.
Annie and I hope you enjoy your Sunday. Take care.
