This is trippy.
Aftershocks continue daily,
in Tokyo planned regional blackouts are happening,
as people try to go to work as usual
huge crowds accumulate at train stations where train numbers have been cut.
On the news,
we are fed little by little about the failing nuclear power plants.
Sounds pretty bad.
Breaking news, another tsunami is coming.....
15 minute warning.
As I think about the likely potentials of an awaited big earthquake around Tokyo,
and a severe nuclear disaster,
I find myself quite calm and detached from the whole situation.
Maybe because I haven't directly experienced the devastation,
Here's another tremor....3rd or 4th one of the day.
Nowhere really safe i can go.
Breaking news, another hydrogen explosion at the nuclear power plant.
Interesting time to be alive.
I guess I just have to be ready to die at any time,
but that should really be a daily practice.
You never know when you'll die.
I remember a really old Vietnamese monk saying,
"if you don't know how to die, you don't know how to live."
