Artist's Description

After the first earthquake everyone thought that we had gone through the big one and except for numerous aftershocks I lives would quickly return to normal. Damaged buildings were going to be repaired, people were being paid out for any homes that were a write off and the aftershocks were slowly getting less.

My own home had a bad shacking, but had come through nearly intact. Everyone was ready to get on with their lives when in the middle of the lunch hour a smaller, but much more violent and closer earthquake struck. Compared with the Japanese it was nothing, but we are still travelling along roads still potholed and extremely lumpy. Some homes that were easy to repair have mostly been done, but many people are still fighting their insurance companies for a realistic payout, many have exterior walls missing and every week one or more major buildings get demolished.

Luckily we have had our insuranvce payment and started the slow process of getting our home rebuilt unlike this home and business shown here.
