I studied abroad one glorious summer in the late 90s in Japan. I found the people to be wonderful, the cities to be clean and beautiful, and my experience enriching. And now I am watching with absolute horror at what is happening in Japan in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake. One of my closest childhood friends has been in Tokyo through this whole affair, and I worry about him greatly.
So Friday Joie Studio's blog will be silent and I encourage all of you to give to the American Red Cross or to Shelterbox through the For Japan With Love website.
