tsunami part 2

Well, nothing happened, at least as far as I could tell. I guess that's good. The only thing I noticed was there were a lot of seagulls making noise right before the tsunami was supposed to come in. The ocean seemed really loud, but I've heard it that loud in regular storms before. I guess a boring tsunami is way better than a non-boring tsunami. I bet the Samoans would agree.

We're going to save a small tsunami tonight, starting about 10 pm. The waves are supposed to be small, one to two feet, and last all night. I live about a block from the beach. I doubt I'll be able to see anything, but I might hear it. The ocean's already pretty loud this close. here are some picture of the beach I took at sunset tonight. The tide is super low right now. All that sand will be covered in water, probably right up to where I was standing.

Why I'm happy, I have no idea.With all the shit that's happened to me lately, I'm surprised I'm not in some serious depression, huddled in the fetal position on the floor, speaking incoherently, or catatonic. For some reason, I've been able to go past feelings of anger, that by all rights I "should" be feeling, and reached acceptance of what has happened, forgive, sort of forget, and just live my life because it's mine, and that's what I want to do. I don't want to whine and complain about it, and think about it constantly, and live in the past, even though the past is only a few weeks ago. I should be angry. But I'm not. I simply want to move on. And be happy. Bad things happen, and sometimes you just need to get past it, and leave the analysing for the future. I have the best family anyone could ever dream of, the perfect boyfriend whom I love more than the world itself, my health. I have food, clean water, shelter, nice things that I like, recreation and hobbies that fulfill me. I live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I couldn't ask for a more perfect life, because it's right here.
