After the Typhoon —

It is hard to imagine now, with the fresh images of devastation and horror, and the threat of nuclear catastrophe looming larger and larger —

But all typhoons pass, even the worst. Humans suffer, but endure. Time itself is an everlasting tide, and some day beauty and hope and promise will return, as this sunset did, After the Typhoon:

    It’s true people endure, even during suffering, and the sun does shine again (though when it happens too soon afterwards it seems cruel), but for those who lost everything – homes, family, livelihood – life will never return to what was normal before the earthquake and tsunami. It’s hard to forge a new life when what you want most is the old one. Hard doesn’t mean impossible however, and I understand the implied hope in your post, and the notion that the world keeps turning even if humans are suffering. At an ancient time like this, that great indifference may just be what drove humans to desire a “God” that would care for them…

    “Humans suffer, but endure.” So true. They say “Time heals all wounds” – and I have found this to be true in my experience. It’s not intended to minimize the pain of the present, but instead offer hope for the future.
