TSUNAMI as ARTMost of the interesting things you will want to read are over on the right hand side of this web blog - the horrifying stories of what happened on - and the days following - of December 26th.
Still - the thoughts come and go in my mind - mostly as things I want to forget. Occassionally, I run in to a person who says, "Oh yeah - I heard you were in the Tsunami." I look at them sometimes - puzzled - feeling as if surely they can't mean me. But then I remember it was there - and I am amazed at how the mind just somehow wants to forget.
At a dinner party this weekend - I ran in to an artist friend. The day after the tsunami - he painted a dramatic piece he called "Tsunami." He told me I must come look at it. I was excited - hoping to be able to buy a piece of his that could be a memory of what I experienced. But when I saw it - it was too real.
Over the last weeks - we have been talking about it. And the topic came up again this weekend - when I found out he renamed it.
If you are interested to see a picture of this piece of art - to read his side of the story - and my reponse to him - go and visit his blog at:
