finding it hard to get my head around the devastation of the earthquake and tsunami in japan. it kind of feels wrong to carry on enjoying the luxuries of home life inbetween watching the spectacle of the images from japan from the comfort of my sofa. i find it shocking and upsetting but also fascinating and the very fact that i find it fascinating makes me feel uncomfortable with myself because with fascination usually comes a certain amount of satisfaction and enjoyment which i obviously dont feel seeing such devastation and suffering. what i've seen on tv is so far removed from anything i've ever experienced that i struggle to get a sense that its real rather than just something thats happening on television. whats happened and happening is extreme and terrible for the people, the part i probably find fascinating is the unstoppable power of nature.
