I was so inspired by the email I blogged about on 20th March that I was moved to make a video based on it and post it on YouTube. I hope that it will inspire others who watch it and that they will feel the possibility of the human connection in the face of such utter disaster.
I am worried that some people who watch it may think I am trying to glorify the disaster in Japan or be insensitive about it or, even worse, glamorise it, so I want to make my intention clear here which is that I want to honour the woman who wrote the email describing her experiences and I am blown over by the possibilities of connecting to each other that she wrote about, by the love that is being expressed between fellow human beings in the face of such disaster and by the promise of how, when everything is stripped away, all that remains is me – connecting to you – connecting to everyone else – connecting back to me.
No separation. No selfishness. No fear.
It’s a way to live in the future. Without the disasters of course.
