Hello everyone

I'm blogging from Japan right now, where I was privileged to attend the a-bomb memorial ceremonies in Nagasaki on August 9th. As in Hiroshima, I have encountered no recriminations here, no bitterness - only a commitment to peace and a future unclouded by war and the threat of nuclear annihilation.

On this, the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, I invite you to reflect on the meaning of this event in the context of Fukushima.

My latest book, "Prayers in Stone: Nagasaki's A-Bomb Heritage Sites" is now available in ebook format.

Richly illustrated and with a wealth of materials never before available in English, Prayers in Stone provides an overview of more than 200 of Nagasaki's A-bomb heritage sites, including: bells; bridges; cemeteries; churches; fountains; memorials; museums; parks; schools; shrines; statues; temples; trees; and tunnels.
The entries are organized into a series of tours for the convenience of tourists actually visiting the city, and to give the general reader a sense of the layout and the proximity to the hypocenter. In addition to a forward, introduction, postscript, and reference section, the book also includes all-new translations of A-bomb literature by several atomic survivors.
Journey to Nagasaki, and discover the lessons the city has to offer.
