A few days ago, he and his wife Esther took a train trip out of Tokyo and while travelling past Mt Fuji, he photographed the famous mountain from an unusual angle.
But it wasn't the angle that got my attention; it was the wisps of smoke puffing up from the crater. This happens from time to time and usually indicates there something unusual going on down there in the bowels of the earth.
Last week, Glenn sent this picture to his mother, my sister Jan, and she passed it on to me.
I couldn't help noticing that the clouds looked eerily like a skull, maybe with a bit of hair hiding the ear, the 'mouth' also blowing a wisp of smoke as well, and I remarked on this two days ago to my sisters.
In the ancient chronicles of Japan, such as the Nihongi, the islands of Japan are all children of the deities Izanagi and Izanami, and the story of the birth of these islands is a fascinating one. With the massive earthquake and tsunami of 11 March 2011, maybe the venerable mountain, which hasn't erupted since 1707, was sending out a warning that something big was going to happen!
Let's hope the earth settles down again and gives Japan the time it needs to deal with the immense task ahead. And let's also hope that Mt Fuji needs to give no further warnings for quite some time at least!
