Today a 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit Virginia. This was too close to home, if you ask me. My family is near there. And many friends. And many of you. But from what I understand, all is well … mostly. And I am so grateful.
What happened today, of course, was not the huge magnitude as many of the other natural disasters we’ve all become familiar with over recent years. But what happened today certainly brought about some feelings, anxieties, uncertainties, and even fears in many. Even if no one was hurt, even if there was no damage on your street, many of you were affected by today’s earthquake.
Because many of us think a lot about documenting life, and recognize the power and blessings in doing so … I wanted to ask you: How do you document something like this? Where do you record written thoughts about how you’re affected? What do you photograph? How do you document?
I would love to share several ideas — your ideas — about this on my blog ASAP, since it’s still very fresh. If you have a picture or thought to share (whether from today’s earthquake or any past experience in your neck of the woods), please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll collect the ideas and share tomorrow.
