The Buddhist Quote I Can’t Stop Thinking about Since the Turkey-Syria Earthquake.


At 3:20 a.m. on Monday, it felt like the bed was shaking.

At first, I thought it was my husband turning around, but then I realized it wasn’t him.

Could it be an earthquake? “No way,” I had thought. I’m almost 34 and I’ve never experienced an earthquake in Lebanon.
