Eery stillness

During my first year and a half in Taiwan, it seemed that we had a good little rumbler of an earthquake at least once a month. I grew almost to appreciate those little temblors, on the theory that little temblors released tectonic energy in small amounts, so that big quakes would never be necessary.

Hmm. I can't remember the last time we felt any trembling in Taipei...

On another note, I see that Taiwan won the prize for best international float in the Rose Bowl Parade. I'd provide a link, but the news has filled me with such excitement that my hypothalamus is spasming, and I need to lie down.
