I am sure by now you have heard and read all the news, tweets and blogs about the earthquake here at the east coast.
A few years ago sometime after the big tsunami in Asia, I read a psychologist and philosopher, William James’s essay called On Some Mental Effects of the Earthquake. Other than some psychological impact of trauma, he seemed to embrace and welcome earthquakes.
The emotion consisted wholly of glee and admiration; glee at the vividness which such an abstract idea or verbal term as `earthquake’ could put on when translated into sensible reality and verified concretely; and admiration at the way in which the frail little wooden house could hold itself together in spite of such a shaking. I felt no trace whatever of fear; it was pure delight and welcome.
