earthquakes

i really hate whats happenning to the world right now and i just dont mean politically…

…it’s the damned earthquakes.   i’m shocked at whats happenned in haiti and chile and more or less smaller sized earthquakes that we’ve been experiencing in pakistan.

apparently the planet earth has experienced 350 earthquakes alone in the past week

i’m an earthquake survivor – at least thats what you can say from a technical stand point.  you see – i lived in the building opposite of margalla towers when it collapsed in the big earthquake of 2005.  at the time i was bed ridden with a back problem and hobbling on a stick praying that my building wouldnt not crash on me as well…

i can tell you that for a long time after that i couldnt handle being still… that the aftershocks that went on for a month gave me motion anxiety. that for years afterwards i couldnt handle watching my friends at in a play because i felt that my chair was shaking.

of course… i had it better than most who survived an earthquake.  a lot of people lost their families, their homes and their most dearest belongings. i got away with a bit of chronic motion anxiety and temporary homelessness.

i have very strange dreams – theyre mostly about experiencing a natural disaster – about going on a journey with a group of people and finding a new place or haven to live in because our homes have been destroyed.  maybe it’s a side effect of the earthquake in 2005 but its been going on longer than that.

maybe we are going to experience a 2012 movie type situation.  maybe the world is ending and even rightfully so. the logical bit of me feels that well… it is illogical.  the bit of me that goes off hunches feel likewise…

… this could quite possible be the beginning of something far bigger.
