Here is a heart-felt thank you to everyone who
has written with love, concern and hope for my family in Fukushima.
I am happy and relieved to tell you that they managed to get to
Tokyo and are staying with other family members there.
They were indeed in the evacuation area, and though their home and business is
under threat from the power plants at least they are safely away.
Please continue to keep everyone in
your heart and prayers.
The potter, Ayumi Horie, and her friends have organized an online ebay auction,
"Handmade For Japan"
This sale of ceramics and other media
donated by artists around the world will begin Friday the 18th
and support earthquake and tsunami survivors.
100% of net proceeds will go to relief efforts in Japan.
You can go to Handmade for Japan on facebook (and ebay?)
to see the items.
