On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.
We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.
Earthquake in Dharamsala?
It seems I slept through a small earthquake this morning. It can't have been much and doesn't seem to have made the news anywhere. But then today, in the world, there were at least 90 earthquakes (measuring more than 1.5 on the Richter scale), with many occurring in the US. In the past week 709 quakes were reported and 2,800 in the past month.
In 1905 in Dharamsala, India's worse modern earthquake occurred, killing around 20,000 people. It measured 7.8 and was felt as far away as in Delhi. It prompted the British to decamp from here and move its administration to Shimla, over 200km away in the east of the state. http://123himachal.com/dharamsala/links/1905.htm
