On the rare occasion that Fuji San could be seen when rounding Tomagashima at the entrance of Tokyo Bay,I always had feelings of hope.Hope that the weather would be fine for the rest of the voyage.Hope that a good trip ashore might be had.Hope that all was well at home.

In light of the recent calamity in Japan I have only feelings of helplessness.All I can do is hope.Hope that more survivors will be found.Hope the a nuclear disaster can be avoided.Hope that people can get their lives back on track as soon as possible.

Hope.It's the antidote to helplessness.
