MARCH BLUES
March blues, tsunami blues. Some believe a Japanese deity, Kashimi lived to tame Namazi, a giant cat fish deep in the earth, wild to cause chaos and death. One grunt and the earth went crazy. According to legend, a large rock on top of this creature, a sword in its mouth can quiet its violence. After the 1855 great Edu earthquake, suddenly there were many paintings of the goddess stabbing the cat fish wish a sword assisted by a Buddhist deity with a mallet while a fish headed creature beats the cat fist to stop its destructive thrashing. The names of the towns damaged in the 1855 quake are written in their robes

LETTER DAYS AFTER THE TSUNAMI
the last few days everything was in chaos. When I close my eyes, I see dead bodies. When I open my eyes I see dead bodies. Each of us must work 20 hours a day. I wish there were 48 hours in the day so we could help rescue folks. We are without water, electricity and food. We barely manage to move refugees before there are orders to move them somewhere else

ONE MAN SAYS
he saw a little Japanese boy at a grammar school to help a charity organization give out food. It was a long line that snaked one way then another. It was getting very cold. He was at the end of the line in a t shirt and a pair of shorts. the little boy was at the end of the line. The man said he worried that by the time he got to the end of the line there would not be any food. So he spoke to the boy who said he was at school when his earth quake came. His father was heading away. He saw the tsunami sweep his father away. His mother's house he said is right by the beach and she and his little sister probably didn't make it. He turned his head and wiped his face when asked about his relatives. When food rations fell out the boy took then but didn't eat them right away. Instead he kept the food and put it where all the food was to be distributed. When asked why he didn't eat it he said a lot more people had more hunger than he had
