Talking to our screens

I've been glad of my blogging friends, this weird, sad week of faraway cataclysm. Glad to read the thoughts I linked to below, and later to read those - each very different - of Beth, Parmanu and Fire Bird. For out in the non-virtual world we've spoken little of Japan - too busy, too rigorously superficial. Not that people don't care, but it seems to be only alone, facing our computer screens, that we think about and say these things.

I agree. Today our local newspaper had stories of many of the impacted individuals often with their names, even a story of a classroom of children and their teacher, still waiting for the parents that never made it there to pick them up. These kind of 'human interest' stories have been rare on the internet news. They really tear me up more than anything.
