As I had been obsessed with dwelling in ‘a room of my own’ in a safe and sleepy - sometimes absurdly happy, boring bubble, Japan was dealing with the largest earthquake in its history and the fifth largest in the last one hundred years of the world - plus an explosion from a damaged nuclear plant. I heard that a wall of sea water, perhaps 10 metres high, was traveling at 600 km an hour. So little time to think, to escape, no time really, to execute one’s getaway.
Dealing with grief on a small personal scale - dealing with grief on a gargantuan scale almost beyond the limits of imagination - it's overwhelming really, incomprehensible – we must help one another.
