Geo 365: Oct. 21, Day 294: The Dock

The tsunami dock that floated across the Pacific Ocean following the March 11, 2011 Tohoku earthquake has not lost its power to stop me in my tracks. In being cut up and put into a more formal "shrine" sort of setting, I think it lost some of its raw power, but I can't see it without being reminded of the devastation and lives lost. That said, I do wish there had been time and resources available to find a way to anchor it in the location where it actually made landfall.
