I awoke at 1 a.m. with too much on my mind. So, I reached over to my bedside table and picked up my iPhone to sort through e-mail and read the news of the night via Twitter. The devastation of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami were just hitting the media, and I found myself up until 2:30 watching videos and reading blogs and updates. I was half a world away but watching millions of lives changing and ending before my eyes. What powerful emotions wash over you when you feel simultaneously saddened and fortunate.
So it was painfully ironic that I stepped outside this morning with my camera to capture the beauty of water. Ice had created amazing patterns on our car overnight. H20 as a tsunami wreaks devastation, while frozen hydrogen and oxygen molecules merge into artistic creations that amaze in their perfection and delicate detail.
