girl with pointy shoes - 12" square

I finished this and finished my taxes so I am satisfied to some degree. However, I continue to be horrified by the news from Japan and nearly as horrified by the insane reaction of our government and many of our citizens. How on earth can anyone support the use of any form of nuclear technology? I have always loved the natural world above everything else and it just sickens me that we, as humans beings,  feel that we can toy with that world's very survival. I find this exteremely depressing and don't want to be correct in my assessment that western culture is on a suicide path. I try very hard to keep my political thoughts absent from this blog but sometimes (and way too frequently) events are just so monumental, I cannot help myself.
