[hiatus end - 2011.04.10]

the past month has been different.

i had a bit more time, because admittedly this blogging business does suck up time.
also, i had picked up four new video games (assassin's creed 2, demon's souls, nba 2k11, and dante's inferno, for those who are curious) and those have quickly eaten up whatever time my hiatus had freed up.

i've also gone on trips and photo walks (i had gone on a blogging hiatus, not a picture-taking hiatus) and now am up to my nose in unprocessed pictures.  they can pile up really quick.

japan is still struggling and i try to keep myself updated with news of what is happening.  there was a massive aftershock just a few days back, but that thankfully caused minimal damage.

for a country i have never visited, i certainly am affected by their struggles.  certainly, their situation is desperate, but they have not been in despair.

i have come to admire their resilience, fortitude, and discipline.  it is amazing how they cope with a devastation of this scale and magnitude such with poise and grace: i have not heard of any news of looting or riots.  

i am in awe of the fukushima fifty: their heroism truly is admirable.  

i think, i hope japan is getting better.  i know they're not okay yet.  but they are getting better.

ganbatte, japan.  may your road to recovery be swift and steady.

(p.s. probably no vacation pics just yet.  but possibly a few pictures every now and then)
