Weekend is upon us...

( photo taken from my last Tokyo trip ) 
Hello everyone...
I'm sure you've heard about the devastating earthquake & tsunami which 
hit Japan yesterday. As some of you know, I have friends & colleagues in that country.
 Hoping that they are all doing fine... I have not heard anything back from them so far.
Our thoughts & prayers go out to all the people affected by this disaster.
.
' Have a safe Weekend! ' 
~XOXO*

Soon after I got word of this disaster I thought about you, Lenore. I hope as you do that all of your Japanese colleagues made it through alright. Is it just my imagination or is seismic activity on the rise around the globe? Have a safe and happy weekend, dear friend Lenore!

That is so terrible! I'm praying for your friends. From what I heard the cell phones were down all night and this morning in Japan so hopefully that's why you haven't heard yet.

Kris said...

Have a good one as well and hope your friends are OK!

Take care.

It's absolutely terrifying. The footage of the tsunamis is something I won't soon forget, especially since it could happen in California too!

Thank God the Japanese have such an advanced earthquake preparedness system, or things could have been a lot worse.

Oh that is horrible! What happened is just too sad for words and to have friends or relatives in the area must be really frightening!
