Yesterday, I wallowed in the dark despair of depression over a tiny thing. Today the world is changing and there is much more to be sad about. 8.9 earthquake has hit Japan and will cause tsunamis for New Zealand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, and others. At the time of typing this 32 have died but as also the death toll is expected to rise. And a volcano has erupted in Hawaii. This is something to feel sad for. It is yet another senseless loss of life at Mother Nature’s fury and this will fuel speculation that the biggest moon for 19 years are the cause of this problem. The moon will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter, the last ‘supermoon’ happened in 10th Jan 2005 around the time of the Indonesian earthquake that was a 9.0 and hurricane Katrina that occurred later that same year. Previous ‘supermoon’ have happened 1955, 1974 and 1992. Whether or not the moon is the cause of this earthquake will be of no concern to those involved at the moment. Our thoughts are with those who may be suffering at this time.
