The forces of Nature

Today's tsunami that has devastated coastal Japan has made me reflect on my last but one post. Despite all the scientific predicting devices, nothing is as strong as natural forces and there is precious little one can do when an offshore earthquake happens without warning, as this one did. I have been in tears watching the images of that unstoppable tide, flooding the fields with the wreckage of homes, cars, even ships, like so much matchwood. My heart goes out to the families of those who have been killed, and who have lost so much.
