I have given many thoughts on how best to help out with the Japan disaster.
I found myself thinking more and more about helping someone directly.
I wanted to know that my money would go straight to the person and not through so many channels.
When Mark and I experienced the overnight loss by fire to our work studio I remember how difficult that was.
After years of making our living by making pottery we were in a sense homeless.
We had a lot of great support and help from the neighborhood and our pottery community.
What helped the most at that time were the money donations that were given and sent to us.
They bridged a gap for us at a time when it was most needed.
With this said I plan to give some money to Euan Craig firstname.lastname@example.org by using paypal.
I was going to send a check but felt it might take too long and not be as quick or as easy for him with all he has going on.
If anyone else is interested in helping him please do.
I know how much his writing and voice have touched me.
I also know how hard it is to find yourself without your sense of place.
I look forward to watching and reading while he works his way forward.
We are all blessed in many ways.
The connections we are building daily through our blogs touch me deeply and make me want to give back.
I am off to make a donation in hope that it will help him and his family.
Peace -and may your day be filled with good things, but be dull and free of chaos.
