Nuclear, March 2017 (16,000 RIP)

A young couple prays for the victims of the March 2011 Tohoku earthquake on a tsunami barrier at Arahama Beach in Sendaii, Miyagi Prefecture. The 9.0-magnitude quake triggered a tsunami that devastated northeastern Japan, killing nearly 16,000 people and causing a nuclear disaster at Tokyo Electric Power’s Fukushima Daiichi power plant (Kimimasa Mayama, EPA, Shutterstock, wsj.com March 11, 2018)

Miracle. All of it.

Behind me the sun settles
into the sea but I’m facing
a fire flickering in a great stone
hearth not big enough to roast
an ox, but big enough.
It’s taken the universe fifteen
billion years to get me here
and I find I’m grateful.

Nils Peterson, “Christmas Eve By the Sea” in A Walk to the Center of Things

Miracle. All of it.

It is, after all, not necessary to fly right into the middle of the sun,

but it is necessary to crawl to a clean little spot on earth where the sun sometimes shines

and one can warm oneself a little.

~ Franz Kafka, from Letter to His Father
