I am afraid it is coming closer.

There was another quake very early this morning in Turkey. And yes, I know that earthquakes don't kill people - collapsed buildings kill people. But the damn things wouldn't have collapsed if the earth wouldn't have moved.

I don't know why there has to be this sort of tragedy and suffering. There are times when I am convinced that it is all random chance and just plain old bad luck. And other times I am sure it is part of something bigger; a design and pattern that is playing itself out. Today I look at the image of those women, standing outside a boarding school in Turkey that collapsed - not knowing if their children are alive, and I don't know. I am at a loss. I don't know why there has to be this kind of pain.

I want to be wrong about this.

That is all.


  1. I saw the news about Turkey right after I read your blog last night. It's so incredibly sad.

  2. I know. I wish it would all just settle down. It is really scaring me for California. I am quite literally afraid every time I open Yahoo to look at the headlines...

  3. japan yesterday I think?


  4. Oh no, didn't know about Japan - I'm off to google it. :(
