Wow, Lynette. Beautifully written. We thought of you both immediately when we learned of the alert — what a scare. You and thousands are in the aftershock, ironically, since ‘nothing’ happened — except to your collective consciousness’. Today, no doubt, the sun burns brighter, the breeze feels more intense on your cheeks, the ‘distance waves’ beat to your heart, as you all cherish still being alive in the islands! And we are so grateful about that.
