The sweetness of noticing your life.

March 31, 2020

I’m ready for some happiness. Mother Teresa reminds us.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.

The world, this shadow of the soul, or other me, lies wide around. Its attraction are the keys which unlock my thoughts and make me acquainted with myself. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

When do you feel you are most in touch with your spirit, the core of your being? Where are you? What are you doing? Who are you with? Who would you want to be with? How does this make you feel? -Alexandra Stoddard

If the future seems dark to us is it not perhaps because we are witnessing the dawn of a light that has never before been seen? We live in an age in which charity can become heroic as it has never been before. We live, perhaps, on the threshold of the greatest eucharistic era of the world–the earth that may witness the final union of all mankind. -Thomas Merton

Enjoyment is the sweetness of noticing your life right now; the sunset, the taste of cool water, the smell of clean sheets. Find something to enjoy right now. -Judith Hanson Lasater

“Do you know what those people are doing, boys? Fertilizing daffodils!” -Robin Williams as Mr. Keating in ‘Dead Poets Society’

6.5 magnitude earthquake rattles Idaho and 7 surrounding states

BOISE, Idaho — At 5:52 p.m. Tuesday, the Idaho and states throughout the Northwest were rattled by a 6.5 magnitude earthquake, according to the USGS.

The USGS reports that the epicenter was west of Challis and 73.3 miles north of Meridian.

According to the USGS map, the epicenter of the earthquake was next to Shake Creek and Laidlow Creek in the north-central Idaho mountains.

The USGS had a delay in reporting the earthquake because of social distancing, according to Paul Bodin, the head of the University of Washington seismology lab, who talked to our sister station in Seattle, KING.

KTVB staff felt the possible earthquake from North Boise, Meridian, and Nampa. One of our staff members said her family in Montana felt the earthquake.

People in seven different states reportedly felt the 6.5 magnitude earthquake, according to the USGS’s intensity map.

The earthquake came less than two weeks after a major quake rattled Utah, Idaho’s neighbor to the south. That 5.7-magnitude earthquake struck just outside Salt Lake City, damaging buildings and spurring evacuations.

The USGS said the earthquake’s depth was 10 kilometers.

Boise Mayor Lauren McLean tweeted out “Boise, yes you did feel an #earthquake. City officials are checking all our facilities and public safety officers are conducting structural checks downtown and in our neighborhoods.”

A 4.6-magnitude aftershock was felt after the earthquake throughout Boise and the Treasure Valley.

KTVB contacted several gas stations in Challis, Stanley, and Cascade and they said there was no severe damage to buildings or property there.

The Boise Police Department tweeted that they have not received any reports of damage.

The Custer County Sheriff’s Office told KTVB that they have no reported structural damage at this time.
