I'm sure it's on all of our minds this weekend. So I wanted to take some time away from posting pictures of beautiful interiors - and focus that energy on the ongoing tragedy in Japan.
I was just getting ready for bed on Thursday night - and looking through my twitter feed one last time before turning in for good - when I saw numerous postings about "Japan." What followed was almost 3 or 4 hours of watching news from various sources - and just being gobsmacked at the damage.
And then it started getting really strange - at about 1am here the emergency broadcast system (the one that you see and hear tested all the time) actually came on - with the news of danger of another tsunami hitting San Francisco the next morning.
I ended up sleeping on the sofa that night. Watching the television news off and on for the entire night.
Though we here in San Francisco weren't affected in any way, there was some damage along the California coastline. It was amazing to see how large the effects of the quake were. Thank you to everyone who reached out to me.

And I'm watching coverage again this morning - we've got a long way to go.
