There has been a lot of fresh snow - enough to stop the postman coming near the farm.
A chill wind blows and so much needs done yet I cannot concentrate on our work just now given the awful disasters in Japan.
The scale of the disaster is incomprehensible, the scenes are surreal, the suffering is palpable.
We sit here on the other side of the world, inconvenienced a little by some snow but safe.
I hope that those affected find healing and security.
Words are futile and difficult yet the emotion is raw and real.
God help them.
