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

Thanks, Carina, that's a good link. Many actors and musicians and sports players are helping out.

Thanks Niall, the links are interesting, I'm happy the radiation levels are normal.The twitters are doing a great job. And even the yakuza is helping. You mentioned in y. last post the donation of Bullock, but there are others like Eastwood who donated a million too, you can read it below..And the red cross here is sending sms to the people who like to join a group to go to Japan to help.
