I am very lucky to have some fantastic friends who I have met when I attend the proms in London.

Two of those friends are Japanese and they have family and friends still in Japan. I sent my thoughts to them and hoped that they have heard good news from Japan. I am still waiting to hear from one of the friends but the other tells me that her family is safe but she is struggling to contact friends in Tokyo as the phones are down.

My heart goes out to all of those people caught up in this catastrophe and I will be thinking of them over the coming days.
