thank you so so much for your warm words and thoughts. when it happened i was home alone, i totally panicked crying not knowing what to do, glasses broken on the floor plants books photo frames fell from where they were. later noticed that all the roof tiles fell from an old house right behind us and it was scary. after the second big quake i was picked up by my husband's dad and ended up staying with them overnight, there was no way i could stay by myself. my husband came home from work after midnight when the trains started to run again. i was with ebony earlier she's safe too.
i was worried sick for my niece ako who lives in sendai, near the worst damaged area but soon heard she's safe with her family and I was so relieved though it is truly devastating to see the damage done up north peole losing their houses and loved ones. we're all pretty safe in tokyo now though we are feeling so many aftershocks all the time -it's shaking right now while i'm typing this. please if you have a moment please do pray for those people up north who are in the cold still waiting to be rescued. all the help, support, thoughts, love, prayers for us from outside japan is really amazing, thank you i want to thank you all so much.

love from tokyo
hiki
