QW 031112 “A year ago 3.11”

I’m writing this piece at around 23:40. This is when I got back home exactly a year ago. The first thing I did upon opening the front door of my house is… dash to the bathroom! It was almost 5 hour-taxi ride from the campus where I was teaching a class at the time of the earthquake. It was too awkward “even” for me to ask the taxi driver to drop by somewhere for “that” purpose. I still remember having felt quite relieved to know that the electricity, gas, and water supply were not shut down. The major damage to my house is dozens of smashed glasses and plates, fallen books, misplaced furniture. It was very limited damage compared to the magnitude of the earthquake, so to speak. There were constant aftershocks throughout the night and I could barely sleep that night. I vividly remember having read kind, thoughtful, and sometimes ridiculously funny tweets from my buddies on Twitterverse and thanked them for their tangible and intangible support. Oh, yes, it’s been only a year. It was just a year ago today.
