As you probably know, Japan has been devastated by an earthquake, tsunami, after-shocks and threats of nuclear melt-downs. So far I've heard from all but one of my Japanese friends, and I'm really hoping the reason being is that she simply doesn't have power.
Thanks for all the well-wishing, and yes, our family is luckily untouched as they are in the southern half of Japan.

It's times like these that make me feel like being an artist is a totally meaningless job, that I should be out there helping people, doing something that really matters.
