    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: No Place To Run To, Baby ...



    ... no place to hide! I came back to Tsukuba yesterday to find a town returning to calm, neighbors helping neighbors, and a great spirit of volunteerism and service. People are staying out of the rain, trying to avoid drinking the water, and the ground still shakes now and then ... but, otherwise, pretty ordinary March day.

    These are images and newsreports of the 1896! tsunami in Japan which is said to have killed 27,000! people, rivaling the current disaster. 30,000 may have died earlier the same year in a separate tsunami.



    Nor is that the only such case, with dozens of earthquakes, tsunami, volcanic eruptions, typhoons, plagues, fires, wars and atom bombs just in the past century in Japan ... with hundreds of thousands dead or displaced.

    And, in great part, this is also a source of strength in Japanese national character, as people pull together at such times and overcome. Sure, this recent disaster has a couple of twists ... the nuclear thing and such ... but countless Japanese folks (and non-Japanese too) are doing so in this case too. Something like how Americans needed the hardship of "crossing the great frontier" to make American Character ... Japanese may thrive from nature's hardship and challenge.

    I am sitting in near-normal safety in Tsukuba, while folks are truly suffering 100 miles northeast of here. The highways are filled with relief trucks moving supplies that way, local community groups are pitching in too in my town and 1000 others. I sent Mina and Leon to be with relatives in Osaka, the "safe" part of Japan (although they also have had a killer tsunami or two down there in centuries past), because the radiation levels here in the air, rain and water are not advisable for growing children. For an old guy like me, however, little concern or threat.

    The subject of today's sit-a-long ... no where to run to, baby ... no where we need or can run, baby ... just be still, baby, even as we run for the hills!

    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended.

    Jundo,
    The fact that you mentioned Miami Vice, and the fact that I knew what you were talking about - we are dating ourselves back to the land of 1980s TV shows!!

    Thank you for this talk-

    Gassho,

    Hi Chugai,

    Thank you, I had seen the article when it came out earlier today. As best as I can tell, the numbers are a little misleading for what it means. The radiation is high, but is still pretty much confined to within the reactor faciility itself and still not a threat to health if the workers take precautions. This is the radiation meter at the particle collider a few kilometers from Treeleaf, and it is stable or slightly declining ...

    Jundo in your rendition of "No place to run..." you seemed to be channeling Cheech Marin, who would also probably speak about "bein' cool with it" in "Whatever comes your way". Oh golly now you've got this ole monk running through an entire Cheech and Chong anthology in my mind....I'll have to go to confession after this.!!!

    Gassho,

    Such strange days (even in this strange life). Just a couple of days before, I thought there was a good chance we might have to abandon our house and everything in it if the reactors Chernobyled and the wind blew our way. We caught some of the radiation, but the winds and rains missed us for the most part. 100 and 200 miles north of us, however, people on the coast had truly lost so much ... homes, loved ones. We felt scared and lucky at once.

    Tiger missed us this time.

    We are still not sure what the real health impact will be for people up there long term. Japanese government is doing all it can to discourage, block or keep confidential and detailed research. As far as we can tell, it is still just "one more thing" in life which makes it dangerous (my joke ... but true ... was that the midnight highway drive down to Osaka to flee the overheating reactors, with crazy truck drivers whizzing by, was much more life and death than the reactors themselves, not to mention all the junk food eaten on the way and the step ladder I used to change a light bulb in our temporary housing). But, statistically, something appears to be happening ...
