Shaked by an earthquake

Living in total liberty can drive someone insane.
Like this Saudi Arabian Prince that recently was convicted to many years in prison for killing in his hotel room his valet.
The Prince had all the money in the world and nothing to do and drowned in the pit of nothingness.

But at El Triple, the location in Mexico of the full emptiness, no signs of insanity can be noticed.
This is achieved by having a severe disciplined life.
A strict structure of moments of activities that is performed every very day.
Waking up and rising is always before the sun comes to shine from behind the mountains.
Breakfast is always a glass of orange juice with a multivitamin pill.
Followed by a bowl of four spoons of oatmeal and one spoon of Svelty milk powder.

And so it continues.
Every hour of the day is programmed and never there is a diversion of the schedule.

This may sound rigid and crazy but in fact it is a way to reach a fantastic state of happiness in the life.
This strict schedule opens the way to a higher level of being because the ordinary life that has become on purpose an endlessly repeating routine, kind of disappears.
When the ordinary life has vanished, the extraordinary life becomes available to live and experience and enjoy.

This is why yesterday at around noon it was the scheduled lunch inside the Fuso Szulc.
Two slices of toasted bread: one with Gouda cheese and one with organic raspberry preserves.
With a glass of apple juice and a prune to finish.

There was a wind outside of about 15 km per hour. ( 9 miles ).
And suddenly the Fuso Szulc started to shake.
As if a strong gust of wind had hit the vehicle making it dance on its six wheels.

Immediately the Davis Vantage Vue weather center was checked to learn how many km per hour this wind gust actually was.
But the indicator said it was not more than this 15 km per hour.
No more thought was given to this discrepancy.
As alone the consideration to put more stabilizers underneath the Fuso Szulc.

Later that day one of our fervent and loyal blog readers did send this message:

“You feel what is reported to be a big earthquake today? You ok?”

It was then it was realized it had been an earthquake shaking the Fuso Szulc.

Confirmed by this report from the Associated Press:

MEXICO CITY -- A powerful earthquake struck offshore in Mexico’s Gulf of California on Thursday, causing people to flee into the streets in the western state of Sinaloa, causing fear but no immediate reports of damage or injury.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude of the quake that hit at 11:53 a.m. (1:53 p.m. EDT, 1753 GMT) was calculated as 6.9 and struck about 65 miles (105 kilometers) south of Los Mochis, a city just inland from the coast in Sinaloa.
The epicenter was 85 miles (140 kilometers) northeast of La Paz in Baja California Sur and was at a relatively shallow depth of 6.2 miles (10 kilometers).
Sinaloa civil protections authorities reported no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
Alberto Montoya Rodriguez, who runs the website from his home in Ahome, north of the city, said it seemed to shake for more than a minute, sending him and his neighbors into the streets.
"There was a lot a panic," he said, but there was no damage beyond "just a big scare."
Alejandra Cruz, a worker who answered the telephone at the Best Western Hotel in Los Mochis, said employees and guests were evacuated but returned to the building shortly after.
"We had customers in the restaurant that took to the streets," added Sujey Becerra, an employee of Las Fuentes Los Mochis, another hotel in the city.
The same region was hit by three moderately powerful earthquakes ranging in magnitude from 5.5 to 5.8 Tuesday night and early Wednesday, but they caused no known damage.
