Well, ours is an earthquake zone being mountainous and hilly. After heavy rains during the monsoons, the land gets wet leading to landslides and maybe a quake or two.
It was in the middle of the night, sweet slumber. I felt a rocking sensation, left, right and left again. ‘Hey, did you feel that?’ I asked. ‘Yes’, he said. Then I went right back to sleep. This was last week.
Next day it was all over the news. My friends were taken by storm. ‘What did you do?’ they asked. ‘Oh, I felt it happen’, they waited. ‘Then I went back to sleep’. They gasped.
I think what I did was right for myself. Why should I be getting worried over what I have no control over? And losing sleep in the bargain.
I have taken quakes to be a part of my life. To remind me of nature.
