Have you ever been in a place where you felt there was no way out? Stuck in a rut? Inspiration-less? I have, and its been with my photography. I am taking a workshop to help with finding my way out of this. While the journey has been difficult, it has opened my eyes to so many new things. I am who I am. Not everyone will like me, not everyone will understand me. I am working on being okay with that. I just need to let people see the uniqueness in me and how I see the world… I am creative in my own way. I am learning to Fly. 🙂
Well its been a while since my last post. So many things have happened. I am now finally “finding” the time to update my blog. We are out of Japan temporarily. The CDR and I thought it was in the best interest of our children to leave Japan under the voluntary departure. We are in the states and currently in a rental home. The house is beautiful and spacious, very different from our little home in Japan. I keep hearing echos. There are large windows and a sun room, gorgeous gorgeous light! It’s unfortunate that we are here under these circumstances.
We are keeping busy with school, visiting with family and of course…sight seeing. After all is said and done, it’s hard to enjoy ourselves when we’d rather be home. We will return when the state dept issues an all clear.
Until then we’ll be missing the CDR and home. We’ll make the best of this but we want to be home.
We are still praying for those lost and in need in Japan. We pray for the brave workers and the stabilization of the Fukushima plant.
Many family and friends have asked how they can help with the relief efforts here in Japan. This article titled “Japan earthquake: How you can help” from cnnmoney.com explains what to look out for when choosing an organization to send money to. Hope this will help you in deciding!
We have all been pretty pensive here but are trying to get back into our routines… Unfathomable, even two days later. So many people gone, material things can be replaced lives cannot. If you missed my previous post you can view it here.
We received a call this morning!!! A security guard saw the sign at Starbucks and recognized the bike. We still dont know if it was taken, found or picked up by security. Nonetheless, we are very excited to have found it! And we have one happy little girl. She asked to make brownies and write a thank you for the kind man who called. SWEET.
