I've been kind of nonstop for the past few days and it was only tonight when I sat down after work that I realized how tired I was. And cranky. I sniped at Evan about being nice to me in the wrong way. Yes. Exactly. There is NO wrong way to be nice, but that's not how I was feeling.
And my thoughts are constantly with Japan. I saw some video footage when I was in the Houston airport Monday night coming back from Florida, and it was all I could do not to just start sobbing right there (I was also a bit sleep deprived). I've been to Japan. It's a lovely country filled with beautiful, kind, and supremely polite people. Please, if you haven't, donate some money. Any amount helps. There are many good causes out there that are providing aid. I'm not affiliated with any of them, and I'm not smart enough to know which ones are the best, so I won't provide you with any links, but I'm sure you can all figure out how to contribute.
And to show our support, I won't be posting tomorrow. We'll be having a day of blog silence for Japan.
In honor of the day, here are some of my greenest images from 2011 so far. Since green is sometimes my favorite color (and sometimes blue, and sometimes many other shades of the rainbow), it seems fitting.
