The Tsunami survival!

I was on a comfortable vacation at a paradise island. Music, cocktails, beaches, Palm trees, sun n' sand, all were quite plentiful there. I can remember how enjoyable was each moment spent on that heaven.

But, then, it was that unfateful morning. After having a good night's sleep, I came out of my personal cabin facing the shore of a beach and found out that the waves were behaving strangely.

I, actually saw the height, size and force of the waves increase by each landing on the shore. In no time, I could figure out that the next one's going to thrash the cottages. Worried and terrified, I ran into mine, locked it and got hold of one of the two steel poles supporting the roof. And then, it was the one big water splash that went through the wooden walls of the cabin by breaking the cottage into shatters. With eyes closed, I could feel water lifting me up from the ground. It felt like I had slipped into a deep cold-water swimming pool. Despite loosing solid land under my feet, the grip on pole was strong enough to prevent me from being washed away back to the sea.

The sea was calm, once again, and, I was lying on the same beach but with nothing except ruins of wood and steel in view. As I managed to get out of the trauma, the best thing that happened to me was that I woke up!

Man! that was one freaky dream...

Mine too Goddess! LOL.

Thanks for sharing Mr H. You got me holding my breath there!

Good thing it's just a dream.

dreams and nightmares, reality and shattered illusions are all part of the same consciousness... they all tell something important, just trust your intuition...

keep well...

It's been a bad year for nature's fury, that's for sure. Thoughts continue for the many still trapped and the workers struggling around the clock in Pakistan! It is difficult work but specialists are on the scene.

This immediately made me think of the tsunami in Asia. Scary indeed.

goddess: it surely was for me

asiansmiles: You are always welcome.

It was just a dream and that's the best thing about it

bart: I also believe in connections among reality, illusions and dreams. I only hope that this one isn't going to bring any harm to me and my loved ones...

michael manning: It's going to be even more difficult as furoius Himalayan winter approaches. We hope there isn't any interruption in relief work.

brea: I actually had been thinking about the same disaster. The dream surely was related to the most recent calamity in my own country...
