Theme this week: Anything you wish. The stamp above just arrived to my house on a postcard from
I keep thinking about the earthquake in Japan, and obsessively check the US Geological Survey EQ web page for aftershocks (some have been considerable in size) and the news for more information. It is shocking and sad, and my thoughts are with them. As bad as it is, the damage isn't worse because they have good building codes in Japan. remember the initial 8.9 earthquake was one of the top 10 earthquakes ever measured, in magnitude. the magnitude scale is logarithmic, so that a mag 8 earthquake is 10 times more shaking and 30 times more energy released than a mag 7 earthquake.
I think this stamp reminds us we all share one world.
Please join in, sharing any stamp you wish.
