"Reset" & Today's Sunset

 Well, it's been a little over two weeks now since life as we know it took an unexpected turn, and I thought it was time to shed my shell a little. With nerves worn thin, rattled and on high alert for any aftershocks and possible tsunamis as well as constantly monitoring the situation unfolding in Fukushima and resultant radiation levels, we've kept a pretty low profile. This weekend the sun was out and the weather was nice and settled. I decided the best way to shed my cabin fever and the stress that had built up was to wash it all away with a quick surf. It was great to be back in the water, see familiar faces, and just talk about what's been going on with various people.
Then today, it was my wife's turn. We went for a drive into Tsudanama, to Yuzawaya (a craft shop with loads of material, etc). Now she's stocked up and got some projects on the go to keep her occupied and is all smiles. We also swung by Costco, grabbed some goodies and saw some of the liquefaction problems that have closed Tokyo Disneyland recently and plagued Chch in NZ.
We got back to Kamogawa just in time to witness a very welcome picture perfect beautiful sunset. Feeling GREAT!
