My First Earthquake

Well I haven’t put a Flickr page together yet, but I had my first Earthquake. Last Friday around 8:30 PST the room shook. You know when you move here you here the five things people have been trained to know about L.A., and while I’ve met that hippie, seen that smog, sat in that traffic, and met that hippie, I hadn’t yet had my first earthquake. I thought about it all the time when I got here, then, like the threat of violence from an abusive husband, I forgot about it. Then, the whole room, just…moved. Just an inch, like it was a picture frame, only slightly off. And that was it. I’m glad my first one was a fun cute little one as…there’s more to come.
