The earth did vibrate lightly a few days ago. She made me remember that I live on a volcano who is very much alive. There has been an eruption six years ago. Everyone was ready to be evacuated but then the eruption came a few kilometeres further in the sea. There is always a possibility that you will lose everything you have invested here and you have to fly away.
When I was a child someone told me that one day the sea wil come back to take back the land which the Dutch people had taken from here and whole villages and towns will disappear under the waters. That has happened in the past too. With the rising sea level that might indeed become true in a near future. Here the sea level will rise too but the cliffs are high enough, the island will not change because of that. But here it is the earth who one day might reform herself and the whole little island in the big ocean can easily be blown apart and disappear.
You always have to be ready to let go again, nothing is permanent only change is permanent.
