living on the coast

I had to go with tsunami. Had a scary encounter with a "sneaker wave" once; it came racing all the way to the top of the beach and floated the 4-foot-thick log I was on, causing me to fall off into waist-deep water. Fortunately I fell on the "up" side and so was not crushed by the log as the wave receded, but it made me aware of the power of the sea.

Earthquakes I'm used to. We could have a 9,0-er here any time, but I don't worry about it - what good is worrying? We have some good windstorms but not hurricane level. Flooding can be a big problem, but that we usually know about in advance. What's dust, precious? We're usually too soggy here for dust. Luckily I do not have asthma.

I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the words begin to move around The words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young.

-- Gaston Bachelard
