The very beginning

There are many things happening, too many to process.

Following last night's opening of 'A2-B-C' in Tokyo (INFO), I went for a walk in a Japanese garden this morning to clear my head before heading to the airport on my way to the Canadian and South American premiers (INFO).

I am tired.  It is not the "bad kind of tired" that is accompanied by the dreading of getting out of bed and having to face another day.  Nor is it the "good kind of tired" that comes with the feeling that one has after working hard but sensing that it was somehow all worth it. 

This is the tired one has when turning back is unimaginable, how to move forward is yet unknown, and staying where one is is not an option.

Someone recently commented to me that with all that has happened over the past year, I am finally standing on the "start line".  I was taken aback at first,  thinking "how can I have come this far and only just now be approaching the starting line?".

But I know now they were right.  Everything I have done up until now has been in preparation to begin the work ahead.  And that work is about to begin.

thank you for starting this, Ian... the work ahead will not be easy, but have we a choice?

I just found your blog thru I have wanted to thank you for years for doing this movie and for shedding some light on the effects of Fukushima, so thank you!

You deserve recognition for your courage and for the movie.

Best of luck always!

jBee, Thank you for your support! You are right: we have no choice, but even if we did, I pray we would still choose this path.

Dee, Thank you so much, but I honestly deserve nothing; I have done nothing more than what I have been called to do. I am so grateful for the support and encouragement I have received; this has given me the strength and courage to continue on this journey.

Thank you both for your continued support.

Much Peace,
