f you’ve ever wondered where and why earthquakes happen the most, look no further than a new map, which plots more than a century’s worth of nearly every recorded earthquake strong enough to at least rattle the bookshelves. The map shows earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater since 1898; each is marked in a lightning-bug hue that glows brighter with increasing magnitude.
Believe me, there’s no harder thing in this life than believing that happiness is within my arm’s reach and seeing that there is beauty in this world that I have been missing, and I don’t want to miss no more.
These are the days that are putting wrinkles on my face, and I’ve been forced to admit that the slightest weight could bury me. And now the leaves are turning on the trees and there’s a map between me and what I need.
I don’t know if it needs me, it feels like I’m sinking.
