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 8: socks and riceballs

We are all only human and maybe there is only so much earthquake news our brains can take in. But Japan is still in emergency mode and I don't feel comfortable yet doing a normal blog article about budo. So for a little longer here is some of the news from Japan. Sendai is the town of Masamune Date. He had an eyepatch and a cool helmet with a big crescent moon. So if you need a change from the sadness and tragedy of the news maybe you or someone you know might want to make a model of him (you need both pages I think). But don't forget the prayers.

Thank you for your sensitivness in finding these very interesting articles Niall. Please keep sharing them with us. There is plenty of time for doing budo posts again, the whole aikiweb is about budo, so it is great that one person keeps us informed with the details of this disaster.
