And now trying to get my breath back after having rushing down six floors after a colleague felt a tremor. Someplace 6.30 ish the earth moved.


Can’t get over ruckus I created at the eye doc’s this morning. Unlike gentle me…so every ten min for two hours instilled eye drops for the parent, and offered him a running commentary of the bollywood news-on-a-loop on the tiny tv…


AFTER which the parent and I went up and down the bylanes of Bandra, turning left and right and left again, assisted by a very sincere autofellow, looking for a building THE HUB, asked n no of people, asked the policeman on the beat, asked this that and the other (and all this after the said ruckus at the doc). I remembered the name incorrectly. Bah

haha The Bah that is funny..

Tremors were cause of my dervish dance :) I think you found the reason to that. Glad I didn't have to run out though, it would have scandalized the neighbourhood...

So sorry about all the loss in the previous post. The last few days here have been windier and rainier than usually, but not nearly so devestating as that cyclone!

A strong tremor, it tugs in the back of one's mind for days. Fires up the instincts, exhaustion from being overly alert. Waiting for the next one, something bigger.

Always waiting, I try not to think how were 300 years over due here in the Pacific Northwest. The ring of fire has been particularly active this year, more than I can recall.

I am not too far from Mt. St. Helens on the map.

How can one forget we all live on the sampe planet? The circulating clouds of high and low pressure and the ever shifting tetonic plates.

Take Care,
Nimh
