Today I was going to post a new album review, but in light of the current circumstances in the Pacific, instead I’m dedicating today’s post to all the people affected by the earthquake and the tsunami, especially the country of Japan.

Today’s music offering is a beautiful fan-made video for the song “Chowa Oto -with Reflection-” by Kokia, with visuals taken from the gorgeous anime Mushishi. Even if you can’t understand the actual lyrics, the emotion is nearly palpable. I have yet to visit Japan myself, but Japanese culture pervades some facet of my life on a daily basis. I deeply admire and respect all that the country has offered to the world on a global level, and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone there, as well as those in other countries struck by this devastation.
