It's been a week since the quake hit. It's been a fast, fast week.
A big heartfelt thank you to everyone who has been sending their thoughts, hopes and prayers to me and to all of Japan. It's been moving to see such an outpouring of love and caring.
On Yuko's advice, I've stopped reading Twitter all day and tried to do some other things with my free time. Sitting and watching the news nonstop can really make you feel pessimistic.
I've heard stories of people leaving, and families of friends here asking them to return. I'm having none of that. I'm staying, and that goes for my friends here too. We live here. Japan is our home.
I'm still posting and retweeting some good and some not-good stuff @sleepytako
To keep me busy though I started a new blog on Tumblr.
