The other supernatural experience that was a big learning experience were the earthquakes. I didn't live there during any significant quakes but I did experience tremors on what seemed a regular basis. My roommate warned me that I might notice things moving...the swaying blinds, lampshades trembling, items around the house jumping across their surfaces....she told me not to worry, though....it was normal. I was thrilled upon this revelation. I waited with eagerness for something to fall over and when it did I couldn't believe the softness of it. It was the first time in my life I was really aware that the Earth was a force to be reckoned with.
This morning, after my shower, I retrieved my coffee and plunked down on the bed to watch the latest headlines. I was intrigued to find out news relating to the satellite that was to be shot out of the sky. No news. I took a sip of coffee and felt that old, familiar swaying. Noooooooo. Surely this can't be the case. I must finally be losing my mind.
Thirty seconds later....there it was again. I looked to the blinds - no swaying. I looked to the lampshades - no trembling. I looked at the picture frames - no jumping across their surfaces. Yep, I'm losing my mind.
(Wells, NV is nearly 250 miles away so that is pretty impressive. But what is more impressive is the fact that I actually felt something and was not losing my mind. We'll leave that for when my daughters enter their teen years.....
