My communication today is tied in with this Poignant Ikebana image~ With kind permission from Kathryn, I thought you might like to share our communication ~ Comment to Kathryn ~ This post has arrested my attention: This image would serve as a beautiful tribute for the recent disaster. When I look at the image I see the global turmoil, the swirling of it all, in our minds too, and the helpless situation we all feel towards the Japanese.
