I was almost finished with writing this garden blog post last night. Then the swirling, Mac beach-ball-of-death aka “eternity ball”, appeared. I immediately knew this post was doomed.
Safari crashed before I could save the text. After a long moment of silence, I was staring at a blank computer screen. And I know I’m not the only one this has happened to. I felt like a victim, a sad story of what bloggers often go through when auto-save fails to work in time.
Woe was me.
Then moments later an 8.9 earthquake hits Japan. I read it on twitter, I watch the devastation on television. My feelings of my tragic blog loss suddenly felt selfish, so minuscule compared to the real catastrophe that was occurring on the other side of the world.
I stopped complaining.
Moving forward, I decided to publish this post without any of the original text. With the images before you, I’m hoping you can imagine what my thoughts were and what I was wanting to share.
Sometimes, silence is golden. And i’m feeling that it’s extra appropriate today, in light of the events in Japan.
Our thoughts are with Japan and the whole world.
