I grew up rural working class. Much of my work is raw and from experience.
Many stories and poems published worldwide.

''They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes,
Within a dream.''
Japan Disaster: Rare Photos & Videos - Content Warning.
I discovered photos much more distressing than these, though I do agree these are truly upsetting, but I did hold back. However I didn't shy away completely as I think it's important to grasp a tiny part of the human side of this tragedy and what actually happened rather than sweeping dramatic wave shots and simple numbers.

I honestly hope this is the end of these Disaster blogs for the rest of the year. Thoughts with everyone in Japan.
