Write a story or poem telling about something that pivoted your world from its axis, permanently or temporarily. Or develop a character who is living their best life until … the phone rings, a knock at the door, a stranger with a message is encountered, a spouse reveals a secret. Give details of the life you or your character knows and why you/ they love life even with its little flaws. Then tell how you/they react body and soul to the unexpected zig-zap in life’s path. What do they/you see, feel, hear, smell, taste? How does the earthquake change your/their perspective?
