It's been almost a week now since the horrible things went on in Japan. I have a quite close connection to that country, and I have been more than horrified. Fortunately the person I have been worried about is safe, and so are her loved ones too. I am thankful for that, but my heart still goes out to others there in need of help. I have been working hard, and have tried not to check the news on every five minutes. I have been working on birds, and these ones will always remind me of this time - in good and in bad.
