The powerful tsunami that today slammed into Japan's eastern coast comes just two days after warnings that the movement of the moon could trigger unpredictable events on Earth.Astrologers predicted that on March 19 - a week tomorrow - the so-called 'supermoon' will be closer to Earth than at any time since 1992, just 221,567 miles away, and that its gravitational pull will bring chaos to Earth.
Before my phone dies, I want to tell you a short story.A series of large earthquakes hit Tokyo while I was riding a train. At first it was fun, but turned pretty serious around 7-8 pm when the temperature dropped quickly and there was no hope of taking a train or bus or cab. I've been wandering around the area for about 6 hours and finally settled down in a nice train waiting booth. With about 20 people packed in here and the doors closed, it warmed up nicely. Well, for those in seats, that is. As manners would have it, it was mostly the elderly and women in the seats. After about 30 minutes of a young girl and boy crying to their dad that it was cold, action was taken. A small group of older women went downstairs and somehow procured a large amount of boxes. As they came in, many were perplexed. I, however, was on the same page. As one of the women began breaking down one of the boxes, I took the rest and followed suit. We made a nice barrier from the cold ground and walls for those sitting on the ground. That was the beginning.A blind man was brought in by another one of these angelic women. They placed two broken down boxed across a gap in the seats to give him a place to sit. Afterwards, two other older women left. I assumed they needed to go to the bathroom..... One came back with a bag full of these awesome little heat strips that stick to your body/clothes! The other returned shortly with chocolates and passed them out.That's it for now, but I'm sure as the night goes on and grows colder, there will be more that unfolds.
