I was at my desk on Friday typing when I thought
there was a procession of electric powered gravel trucks driving outside
my building. No sound; much trembling. At first I wondered if I was
having heart problems, but I have so many ex-girlfriends who swear I
have no heart that I had to dismiss the idea. My chair was vibrating and
then I noticed the bottle of soda on the desk was making waves in a
semi-serious way.The sloshing soda made me think of other than myself,
in fact, of an earthquake, this being a likely place for such an
experience. But after a good two or three minutes it settled and
stopped. I noted it in an email to a friend later and laughed it off.
This morning I heard that I felt the tremors of a quake about 50 miles
away to the south at Ica.
