Shaken and Stirred…

We’ve been having a lot of earthquakes here in Southern California recently, tectonic plates shifting and all.  Last night there was a slightly bigger one, no real damage, just a bit of shaking, and about 100 aftershocks. Growing up here you are used to them. They come every so often and a certain section of the population panicked. While the rest of us roll our eyes, no one died and while there is always some sort of damage, it’s nothing that can’t be fixed. It’s just part of living here. We joke that you should buy beach front property in Colorado, for when California does fall off into the ocean. 

I don’t remember the details, but I do recall there being an earthquake on the east coast. I don’t think they get that many so they may not know how to react. I read that some folks just walked out during it; which is a mistake. All those drills as kids taught us to duck and cover under our desks. Or go in a doorway, I don’t know if that’s still true. You basically don’t want to get hit should stuff be thrown around by the shaking. You want to stay safe, although I never got my earthquake kit ready. I really should, right? But we have plenty of water and food, although you should keep cash on hand. I have a bad habit of not keeping the stuff on me. Alright that goes on the list of things I need to fix. 

Hope your ground is stable. ♣

Morrie, Soft and Sweet…

My taste in music is rather eclectic. I used to say that I like everything but country. But I have to tip my hat to the Kenny Rogers, after all he is the Gambler. I have found that I prefer soft and sweet music more often these days. Perhaps I am looking for that calm in my life. A bit of soothing for the soul. I have a thing for Asian laid back vibes. Slow, soft and sweet.

A really nice choice is Morrie. She is a K-Indie (Korean Independent) Artist. Her melodies can relax the soul if you let them. She sings in English, so that is a bonus for us (if you are reading this you can read english most likely, right?). If you want to know more about her, here is an interview she did which I found through this blog.

Here is a bit of her mellow for you to take in.

Yet Again…

OK, I’ve got this. I must tell you I jot down ideas which now sit idly in my notebook. I have written a few blog posts only to discard them. They were a little too depressing. The abbreviated version is that I haven’t been taking good care of myself as I have had to put the needs of others first. I am trying to remedy that, one of my desires is to blog again. It’s a lofty goal, there’s a but that goes there…but it seems unnecessary right now.
