Continuing on…

001-japan

継続は力なり。

Keizoku wa chikara nari

Continuance is power/strength.


Translation:

Don't give up. Just continuing to hold on will reveal strength and power. Continuing on

after a setback is its own kind of strength.

Perseverance is power.

~Japanese Proverb

Godspeed Japan.

{{ have you thought,
missy lime-in
what would happen to you
if the atlantic ocean rolled
3 miles
inward
suddenly?

:-0

i cannot get the picture
of that huge wave rolling
over the japanese land...


me?
i am at sea level here,
less than 2 miles inward...

{{ PS--we have been having
wild fires up here near my house
which has closed I-95...
i am going to work in my garden
all day
& pray for peace
with Mother Nature }}

Beautiful! My husband's family is from Japan, his aunt used to live only 30 feet from the beach in Ishinomaki, near from Sendai. We all hope she's ok...


Well...
I'm in love with your blog. And I loved your photos from Paraty - I'm brazilian and had been there last year. Such lovely place! (but so hard to walk and contemplate the view at the same time... hehe)

Hug!

Having been through a big earthquake that was only 6.2 I cannot even begin to fathom what these poor people are going through. Absolutely catastrophic! The news never gets the after shock thing right. The ground moves constantly. Your nerves get more fried from them. I saw where the news was reporting how the media had descended onto Japan. I felt like blowing raspberries! They need REAL help not reporters from the entire world. This is horrible. Now the nuclear spills, it is an unbelievable nightmare. Unbelievable.

I do like your tribute.

love the post today!
I can not think of a race with more survival will than Japan; look at the event of the second world war!
This sad event will make them stronger in the long run.
