Update and Helping Japan

My love of kimono is still very much here, even if I haven't been blogging lately! I've started an informal Japanese club at the school I teach at, taken in kimono to show my kids, and am slowly walking the club, a group of wonderfully smart and eager kids, through basic Japanese phrases. :)

However, on a more serious note, tonight I wanted to ask anyone reading to please send along donations, prayer, kind thoughts, or anything they can to the people who have suffered and are still suffering in Japan due to the earthquake, tsunami, aftershocks, and ongoing nuclear scare.

Sendai was the first city I ever lived in in Japan, and one I still hold very dear. It's been rough watching all the footage coming from there without being able to go to Japan and be there to help somehow, but in a very small way I'm now trying to help by donating my own money and spreading the word as much as I can.

Please help me by continuing to spread the word. With its economy going through rough times, Japan has a long, hard road ahead of it in rebuilding.
