A Mothers Yoga

Eyes to sky
Arms out wide sending love
Across the sea
This week's devastating earthquake in Japan
makes one realize how petty most of our problems are.

Earthquakes are part of Nature's renewal but woe betide any mere human in its path! So much suffering and you are right. Events like that should make us wonder why we are 'sweating the small stuff'!
PS. Please assure me that in the making of the photo no chickens were harmed!

My thoughts exactly. At this moment the sun is out here and I can see purple crocus blooming. I get to go wash my dishes in the peace of my house. We are so lucky.

Our problems all seem so minor compared to what these poor people are facing. It's not only the today they have to worry about but the coming weeks and months.

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Cheers, Fi

PS Love the quote on your blog - so true


Earthquakes are a humbling and horrible reminder that latent forces are always imperceptibly building beneath us, that is nature's way. ( Japan is now 8 ft
closer to our shores!) Nuclear power is mankind's answer to a greener renewal and it should be within our power to avert a collision.

Chilling. I was trying to figure out what those were, then I saw Stafford's comment about chicken bones. Tragic what the Japanese are facing - it cannot be sugar coated.

Kelly said...

Powerful photo...and a true statement

Hey Harriet said...

It took me a while to figure out what they were! Ok, wishbones! That's a great shot!

So terribly sad about Japan, and it certainly does put things in perspective.

I was watching the news with my 17 year old last night and he went to bed with tears in his eyes....something he 'don't do a lot' in front of his mum anymore.

I love Stafford's PS....!What a man!
