Sending positive thoughts and prayers out to those in Japan and all of the other areas that have been and will be affected by yesterday's 8.9 Earthquake and subsequent Tsunami. The power of nature never ceases to amaze me. They say waves may reach Hawaii and as far as the California coast too.
After watching the news and a few videos on the devastation, my thoughts wandered and came to rest on images of "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai. He was a great Japanese artist who lived a long time ago from 1760 to 1849. This was the first color block print in the series "Thirty Six Views of Mount Fuji." I found a video with more of his work set to some soothing music too.
I hope that calm seas return soon and that everybody has a safe and blessed day.
