Somehow I missed the 6.7 earthquake at 6:50 this morning. I was up and about getting ready for my day, but I didn’t feel it. I think because I was in motion I wasn’t tuned into the shaking. I’m not sure if it is a good thing or not. I seem to feel every little shake when I’m laying on my bed or sitting in a chair.
The earth is still restless, and hasn’t wanted to calm down, yet. There is the back of everyone’s mind, especially mine, the big 8.0 aftershock that is very likely to come. Until that big aftershock hits, and the ongoing nuclear disaster is one reason why we are still living through the crisis, we haven’t been able to look back on it as a past event, because we are still in the midst of the it all.
We are all a bit on edge, even though we might seem calm, we all know that there is the chance that everything could change in a flash. We need to put those things that are truly important. We need to spend time with our families. We need to respect the awesome beauty and power of nature. We need to be thankful for each and everyday that we are given.
