The way it was, March 11, 2011, at 2:46 p.m.

The VIDEO was removed as it seems to have been a pirate of National Geographic images. As it was on Youtube, I assumed it was for general consumption. Such was not the case, and I apologize. Proceeds from A Matter of Tea still go to the victims of the quake and tsunami.

This video is 45 minutes long, and it takes you once again through the experience of Japan's recent earthquake and tsunami disaster. Nearly 40,000 dead or missing. 300 miles of seacoast devastated. 150,000 homes and buildings destroyed. 25,000 households driven out of their abodes by radiation. A disaster like this comes along once in a thousand years (last one was in the 9th century).

If you'd like to help me help out here in Japan. Spend a dollar and buy a copy of A Matter of Tea. Hundreds of people have purchased the book, and I hope the word will continue to get around.
