 I'm still kind of shocked for what happened in Japan. I'm literaly speechless after natural disasters happen. 
 Before starting my fire-fighting job I was like most people when it comes to natural disasters....  - You're afraid of them but you don't really think it's going to happen to you... After this special job I've learned a lot of important and critical "Life Lessons". I guess the biggest one is to respect nature as much I can, because guess what?? It's much more powerful than YOU and yes it can happen to YOU.

 I'm sorry if I'm blackening your Saturday night with these thoughts. I just thought I'd share because I'm really thinking about those poor people all the time. So, if you are greek and you want to follow the latest updates on the incident click here.

 And if you're interested in doing a bit more click here to see ways to help.

 For my American friends, yahoo is suggesting 8 ways to help.

And to sum up: 

Live your life everyday
to the fullest
respect nature
treat others kindly
do good things
whoever you are.... are just a visitor here.


  1. Smart advice. And it's natural and good to feel bad about those whose lives are devastated by tragedy. I admire your compassion.

  2. Japan is a unique country with a fascinating culture... It's so sad. Thank you my dear Ralph. Let's hope Japanese people will be courageous and will come out of this soon.

  3. γεια σου!και εγω χαρηκα που σε βρηκα και σε ευχαριστω πολυ για τα καλα σου λογια! που ηταν πολυ ενθαρυντικα αν κ νομιζω εχω πολυ δρομο μπροστααααα μου.περιμενω ν δω δημιουργιες σου και οτι χρειστεις μπορεις να με ρωτας!!

  4. Καλώς ήρθες!! Αλήθεια μου άρεσαν οι δημιουργίες σου, ειδικά με το υγρό γυαλί! Όλοι έχουμε πολύ δρόμο να κάνουμε (εγώ περισσότερο - χαχα!), η δημιουργία εξάλλου δεν έχει όρια! Αλλά είναι ωραία να έχεις παρέα στο ταξίδι!! Σ' ευχαριστώ λοιπόν!

  5. Thanks for this! Wise advice:-) It's weird how we just push tragedies like the one in Japan away becaus it's not affecting us... I really admire your occupation!

  6. Thank you so much!! You're really sweet :). I think tragedies like that should unite people and make us realise how ephemeral everything is, how precious life is and how much we have in common!

  7. This was a great post. I have been reading so much about this for the last couple of days and I am speechless. It is so tragic and I believe it is affecting people around the world, even though we don't live close to Japan.

  8. Welcome and thank you so much for your nice words! You're so right about that... the climate is changing dramatically and I even read that the day is going to become shorter because of that.I think it's imperative to start treating the planet and all the people with some extra care and respect.

  9. I've been thinking about this nonstop, too. My heart aches for those who have lost their lives, homes, and loved ones... and that is a really good quote and so pertinent. Hugs lovely dimi.


  10. Thank you sweety... I know you have a heart of gold. Let's send all the positive energy we can over there and hope for the best. I'm so glad to see that a spontaneous post like this one attracted all these nice and sincere comments. Hugs back.

  11. Good advice!

    This tragedy is so awful. My heart goes out to all of the friends, families, and emergency workers. I've started putting together an emergency kit because you never know what will happen. We are on the other side of the "ring of fire" and prone to the same kind of earthquake. And nowhere near as prepared as Japan.

  12. I agree, awful. You must be a very practical person Jenn, I'd never think of a kit... And I just understood that I have no idea where you live...
    And nobody is as prepared as those people... If anything like that happened here, I guess the whole country would be destroyed.. It makes me shiver.
