Japan Earthquake

I have spent six + years in Japan. Earthquakes are terrifying and Japan is a second home to me. I feel for those affected by this devastating earthquake and tsunami. It is moments like this that the profundity and perplexity of life and death emerge and bewilder. I stand mouth agape. My heart goes out to the Japanese people and all the inhabitants of that beautiful country.

    my son spent a month in Tono, Japan as an exchange student. We are very worried about this terrible tragety, and also about families in Tono. I can’t find information on how the earthquake affected Japan’s cities that are inland. Do you have any idea? Are you in Japan?

    I’m not in Japan now. You could perhaps call a Japanese embassy and see if they could inquire for you.

    As someone who currently works with Japanese people, I share your passion and compassion for Japan. You’ve put it all very plainly and accurately. There isn’t much we can really say. I came here to read your post on Cioran and the Brown Bunny but I appreciate seeing your words about Japan.
