Six months after 9.11
It is just six months since the earthquake.
I pray anew, from the bottom of my heart,
for the repose of the victims souls.
I did not know what to do in such an unimaginable situation,
so I considered my options.
Then, on the 14th March, I quickly started the contribution site,
SUPPORT JAPAN-Gambare via the internet fundraising site
called JustGiving. At the time I wrote down my feelings
and asked people to click on the site if they shared my sentiment.

Now, the Cannes Film Festival has begun.
I have been going backwards and forwards on whether to write my blog,
but I cannot keep from writing it any longer.

April has arrived and the Cannes Film Festival is looming.
Although applications have already closed I have heard
rumours that it is favouring everything except Japanese films.
However, I always try to ignore these rumours otherwise
I end wasting time on a wild-goose chase.
