It has been a little over 2 months since the March 11th earthquake that turned Tohoku area upside down and disrupted the quiet life of the suburb across the river from me of Shin Urayasu. Still everywhere I go I see signs of reconstruction. New sidewalk bricks are being laid. The gutters and sewers are being dredged, and today I noticed these seemingly random patches of pink flowers. There were just there growing in the green median strips of land between the sidewalk and the streets. Hundreds of little pink wonders, against the little dust devils that are swirling around in the air.
The truly made my heart smile.
