Hello from Tokyo, Japan where I am for a few days. Stay tuned for a full update on my visit but in the meantime, I’m sharing some of the unique ‘faces’ I’ve seen so far (mainly in response to the WordPress Photo Challenge).
Face on a row of posters at the airport as we walked to the arrivals hall.
The faces of two chefs as they prepared our meals.
Thought her face was absolutely beautiful.
The faces of musicians as they played Japanese music.
Even though the rain is falling her face still looks kind of happy.

“There is a lot that happens around the world we cannot control. We cannot stop earthquakes, we cannot prevent droughts, and we cannot prevent all conflict, but when we know where the hungry, the homeless and the sick exist, then we can help.” Jan Schakowsky

Faces Speak is a social media campaign which includes a true story not only narrated by Nicholas Waithe, a Rotarian and personal friend from my island Barbados, but is actually one he experienced up front and center. He was ‘homeless for 24 hours’ and yes, this exercise was part of a much bigger project but Nicholas admits he will never be the same … because the struggle of the homeless is real whether we willingly acknowledge their existence or not.
