The little mud-covered, downed trees photos of Colleges Crossing that were planned for posting here this weekend, pale in comparison to the images coming from Japan.  It would almost be embarrassing to post them now. Pointless.

My television has been on for 48 hours, tuned to Sky News and I can’t make myself turn it off. I watched the video of the waves washing away the entire village of Rikuzentakata at least a dozen times and wept.

So I decided to light a candle and hope some of you will join me.
