my heartfelt prayers go out to japan and her beautiful people.
may their mind-power withstand nuclear disaster and their experience strengthen the world-wide anti-nuclear power movement. may the sun shine on them again.
with love and compassion.

    Many new artists are giving % of their earnings to Japan which is always the best news. Some have sold their works this week and donated their entire earnings. Congratulations to everyone for making such a valid contribution.
