no matter what you simply hear about them on TV
– the REAL THING is quite a burner. Especially when you are tight asleep and get woken by nature that is dancing to the *Shake it out* Song for some seconds.
Today we had one (quite a thing with 5.4 scale) close to Tokyo on the opposite site of the sea in Chiba, Kisarazu.
The house was shaking for a while, and though just some seconds passed by it felt like forever. AND another thing [maybe due to being it the first one I ever experienced] I felt ‘helpless‘ for the first time in quite a while.
⇒ I’m not sure how to express it well, but I see the world now with different eyes. Show me an earthquake and I know ‘how it feels‘ – It’s a big difference to simply ‘watching news‘
Here is a useful link I found http://earthquaketrack.com/p/japan/recent
And I`m gonna be prepared – as (if you can believe the website)
→ ‘419 earthquakes in the past year’ will give me more and more opportunities to practise.
I wasn’t sure what to post so I’m going with this picture. I don’t want to show destroyed houses or streets, we all know what it looks like. What I feel we sometimes forget is WHY it happens. We see the result and try to upgrade our armour – that’s not it! We should accept nature as it is and try to find ways to co-habitate – as we all are simply [not to say unfortunately] more developed parasites on planet earth.
⇒ What we recently do, what we let people do – fracking i.e. IS even an unnatural CAUSE FOR earthquakes…I mean…hello?………well….30 years more to go and I’m done. Good luck for everyone else.
