Earthquakes don't really worry me, but they did when I was a child. Does anyone remember the scene in the 1978 Superman movie when Lois Lane got swallowed up by a massive earthquake?
I was eleven at the time and for years after seeing that movie I lived in fear that the inactive fault that ran near our home would break open and eat us alive.
I'm still living in Southern California and not only has our state not fallen into the ocean (another childhood fear), but I haven't been swallowed up by a giant crack in the earth.
My girls have experienced a few earthquakes, but they do not worry about them either. My California kids have a new concern. That concern is of wildfires.
I took this picture of the sun setting during the wildfires we had last year. Isn't it amazing how something so destructive can create something so beautiful?
