the water does not try
to reflect the moon
and the moon has no desire
to be reflected
but when the clouds clear
there is the moon in the water

Earthquake 11: prints, yakuza...
Rainbow of Peace by Jason Hill used under creative commons licence

Some of the latest stories and information from Japan and one more way you can help. You can buy a print from flickr. You bid on it and when you win you make the donation to charity and the photographer sends you the print.

Yes in fact not regional dialect really - normal Japanese. I'll do an article about numbers used as words one day. A simple one is 3 san 9 kyu so 39 = thank you...

Nice colours! Right title for a beautiful photo .Thanks Niall for the emotive stories, it is nice to read that in such a tragedy nature continues with the birth. And how people join and help each other in that bad times! I found this about name yakuza :In regional dialect ya means 8, ku means 9, and sa means 3, numbers that add up to 20, which is a losing hand in the card game hana-fuda (flower cards)
