I’m Predicting an Earthquake – Literally!
Hopefully, you’ve been reading my blog now for a while and you have come to realize that I’m reasonably sane, lucid and not prone to going off the deep end. 🙂
With that said, I have given a lot of thought to this entry before posting it. Only because I don’t want my readers to think I’m loopy. But, based on my historical accuracy and the level at which this particular event has been presenting itself, I believe I should at least mention it. Get it down on paper, so to speak. I’m writing this at 9:00am (PDT), September 2, 2004.
Okay… what am I talking about? Since I was a child, I’ve been able to correlate something physical that happens to me leading up to seismic activity around the globe. I’ve recently been experiencing this physical "thing" and it’s been in spades. It’s stronger than it’s ever been in my life. In the past, I’d say a good 70% of the time, it has culminated with seismic activity large enough to at least make the news.
I’ve never been able to pin it down to location. Could be anywhere in the world. However, because of the intensity of this latest physical manifestation, it’s quite possible it might be closer to me than further away. (I live in the Pacific Northwest.) I know what you’re thinking… "there’s seismic activity everywhere all the time." Yes, but only a very few ever make it to the nightly news. That’s what I’m talking about.
Anyway, whenever I’ve told people about this thing I get, I always get eye rolling… etc. The problem is, it’s not 100% accurate, but because it’s been way better than 50/50, I believe there’s at least something to it.
What does this have to do with entrepreneurialism? Well… nothing really. 🙂 Just wanted to share this with my readers.
I just hope the intensity of the event doesn’t directly correlate with the intensity of the physical manifestation I’ve been experiencing. If it does, it will be absolutely devastating. Let’s hope I’m wrong.
Okay, have I been relegated to your crazy list yet? 🙂
Update 11:34 am PDT: I’ve been informed by a reader that there are other "rumblings" (pun intended) regarding impending earthquake activity. Interesting… very interesting.
