An unforgettable experience

I was living in a small, one-bedroom apartment in Van Nuys with my daughter in January, 1994. When the earthquake hit, the entire building started to bounce up and down violently like a giant basketball being dribbled by Kobe Bryant.

Rocks and boulders hold a particular interest to Laurie. She is fascinated by the variation of textures and colors, as well as the beautiful formation of shapes of the rocks themselves and the shapes created by light and shadow as boulders rest and lean against each other.

‘Ouah!’

They were three young kids playing in the countryside. The cornfields that day were their props for a hide and seek game. The children loved those fields, and at the same time, scared themselves.

Preparing for the next big one

First and foremost, waking up in the middle of the night to the shaking of my bed scared me to death. I was unaware of what was going on.

The big event

1. It was apparent to me that one of our local water companies was completely over its head when the earthquake struck. At our home, we did not have water for 8 days. I sure hope that they have their act together by now.

‘I would not be here today without you’

On some level, everyone knows things can happen to us that may adversely affect our lives forever, but no one truly believes it will happen to them. Accidents and illness come along with little or no warning and far too often take us by surprise, leaving us ill-prepared to deal with the outcome.

A better way of dealing with minimum wage

When I was a kid, I used to work as a parts chaser in my grandfather's truck and trailer shop. Whenever a driver or mechanic came in, I had to go find the parts he needed and write up the sale.

An overnight success

A short and skinny girl stands in front of a class of third graders. She reads before them as her teacher asked her to do. That ambitious 7-year-old girl had just learned to read and is already a prodigy, setting an example for other pupils. As a reward for being an excellent reader, Naomi's teacher gives her a choice between a color pencil and an oil crayon. She chooses the crayon, a yellow crayon.

My introduction to the new school in upstate New York where my parents had moved to from the San Fernando Valley was a loud "Oh look! A 'Chinee' girl!"
