The Doubting Writer Finds His Voice

Slightly Distracted

The Magpie has been in Japan for a month. Since arriving, she’s experienced:

-One earthquake

-One volcano (no, she was not on the mountain)

-One typhoon (Phanfone, which dumped nearly 11″ of rain on Tokyo last week)

And now, she’s got this bearing down on her:

Here’s a view taken from astronaut Reid Wiseman’s Twitter feed:

 You can understand why I’m a little distracted right now.

  1. Yeah, distracted is probably the 'kind' word. Reid just made that thing scarier. I'm going to believe Magpie is okay and finding ways to enjoy her stay despite all these weather mishaps.

  2. Thanks, everyone. I think she'll be fine. The storm has weakened a bit, though I feel for the folks on Okinawa right now.

  3. Good grief! I hope it clears up soon. I've always wanted to visit Japan—even took a couple of years of Japanese. Of course, I forget it all now…

    I'll pray for Magpie. 🙂
