Tsunami Dreams

I don’t know if you know this about me, but I am terrified of tsunamis. Always have been. I know all the routes inland from Long Branch, Asbury Park, and Point Pleasant by heart. It’s something that will wake me up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat, feeling the walls to make sure they’re still dry.

I have dreams of standing on the beach and seeing a wall of water 25 feet tall coming to wash these shores clean. Maybe it’s repressed Catholic guilt. Some sort of weird baptism fantasy. I don’t know. I should probably see somebody about that, right?

Turns out tsunamis aren’t really like that. There’s no giant wave crashing from above. But the reality is no less terrifying. It’s just unrelenting force, growing outwards from the coastline, plowing everything in it’s way.

This video is probably the craziest one I’ve seen yet from Japan.
