All the Swirl

All you need is HOPE.
As I get ready to see Sir Paul McCartney’s last concert in San Francisco at Candlestick Park next week, I am singing classic Beatles songs daily resonating with the lyrics that defined my youth.  I love the simplicity of Lennon & McCartney’s words, reminding us in this techno age to keep it simple.  Simple was the way life in Rikuzentakata City in Japan leading up to March 11th of 2011.  That morning a 9.0 earthquake devastated the region, causing a tsunami that decimated the entire city including the Suisen Shuzo saké brewery that was established there in 1944.  The kura was reduced to rubble and seven employees lost their lives that day along with thousands of residents along the coastline.
