My dear son Chris always writes when he reads about a temblor in Latin America. He once asked, “Mother, this might seem like a crazy question, but where are you?” (That temblor was in Chile!)
I was not surprised to find his email waiting when I logged on to find out more about the temblor that rattled Costa Rica this morning. While having lunch with the staff from ESCoffee, I heard the television announcer say, “…Costa Rica… Nicaragua.. Panama…” and I immediately turned to see why those countries were suddenly in the noticias. “Oh my,” I said, “I have many friends in that area…”
There will surely be more information soon, but as my loved ones and I have always said, “No news is good news.”
To my friends in Costa Rica, I hope that your houses are intact, your water lines unbroken, and that everyone is fine. Suffice to say that I’m sending you my love and energy, though I suspect there’s no electricity for you to touch base with the world!
Sorry, this is hurried. Will be back online tonight!
