I was woken up by the most beautiful bird song this morning. A smile beamed across my face and my heart was filled with joy as I watched the birds chase each other excitedly from tree to tree. I was thankful to have been gifted another beautiful day.
Then I remembered Japan and it’s unimaginable catastrophe.
Japan seemed so far away but after seeing the destruction and the suffering, Japan felt closer than ever. That feeling of connection bore into me and I wept for their suffering.

We are all connected.

I drew this illustration this morning in hope….


……In hope that in the midst of all their suffering they can find moments when they can hear the bird song too and be filled with joy. That they can feel nature’s love, nature’s promise of new beginnings and happier times.

My thoughts and prayers are with Japan.
