disaster animals in Japan

 sss

Not having the chance to go to Japan this summer, the tsunami, nuclear meltdown, evacuation, and all the persistent recovery feels otherworldly. Generally it feels like I am learning about it as if listening through a thick pillow of distance and inconsistent information.  

My friend Selena has been busy with JEARS and other groups helping needy and abandoned animals in the evacuation zone of Fukushima - updates along the way on her blog.  A few lira, yen, or dollars to the cause I'm sure are appreciated. 

In the absence of the all the people and pets now in the exclusion zone, I wonder how the wild and feral animals are doing?   Experiences like Chernobyl suggest new possibilities for life exist given the unexpected spaces a disaster creates... when given the space

“If we should take a million of worlds like this and number their particles, we should find that there are more Gods than there are particles of matter in those worlds.”

Apostle Orson Pratt, Journal of Discourses, v. 2, p. 345, February 18, 1855 Deity are one; and they constitute the one God that the Prophets speak of, and that the children of men in all worlds worship.
JD 2:345 - p.346, Orson Pratt, February 18, 1855This explains the mystery. If we should take a million of worlds like this and number their particles, we should find that there are more Gods than there are particles of matter in those worlds. But the attributes of Deity are one; and they constitute the one God that the Prophets speak of, and that the children of men in all worlds worship.
JD 2:345 - p.346, Orson Pratt, February 18, 1855

Having experienced my fair share of racial epithets as a Chinese American, this science headline couldn't help but instinctly raise my eyebrows. 

That is right, 'two different chinks' have been identified.  Maybe they are brothers?

ATRFAVT

I was just gifted some letters yesterday - two A's, one R, one F, two T's, and one V to be precise.

They are members of the loose tribe of letters from those signs-as-you-please that populate the landscape, favorites of gas stations and high schools yo teach' - time for a spelling quiz!) across the country.

The plastic + fluorescent light descendants of that genius invention, Moveable type, as well as Scrabble and its freer little bro,  Bananagrams.

These letters were begging to be made into something.  To be given meaning through the power of being part of an entity as collective and significant as a W.O.R.D.
