what a sad day..

I want to assure everyone that we are OK.

This has been really a scary experience.... our building is usually quite well absorbing small quakes and tremors... not today.
In fact today I planned the photoshoot for new designs and was getting ready with my make up and dressing while I felt shaking and then doors started swaying.. then all of my apartment, cabinets with glass in them started rattling, shelves, things that just laid were places there fell out on the floor and my poor cat just hid in a closet and simply won't budge when I tried to grab him and go downstairs just to wait the worst of it out..
Since the biggest earthquake at around 3pm, we've had over 30 aftershocks and all 5-6+ scale.. what one can do.. wait out the worst... I am really far from the coast so we are safe on Tsunami front and live on a 5th floor.

My heart goes out to all the victim families and areas that are affected by tsunami..death toll is rising and so many are still missing.. I guess Japan will deal with the rest of it in the morning... for now.. just prayers.

  17. you know in italy we're accostumed to earthquakes (i don't know if you experiment this while you lived here), but nothing like that - my god - nothing like that.
    strange world - you were the first person i thought about when i knew what happened, but now let's pray, if we're still able to, for the other consequences.

    un abbraccio
