It’s been a crazy day, riding around on potholed roads listening to the radio. Reports from Japan of people without shelter in freezing temperatures, without water, food, electricity. Without any idea of what the next day will bring.
Japanese architecture, I’ve always heard, is based on centuries of experience with earthquakes. No doubt the crisis would be far worse if not for countless adaptations to a region where the earth is unstable.
All the technology we depend on wiped out by nature. Some of the technology coming up against the laws of nature and proving unwise.
I’m thinking of the people there, and hoping the worst is soon over.
