The thing that surprised me was how many people gravitated towards an erupting volcano.
Isn't that the truth.
It's really almost mystical.
Also something I find really interesting is when she blows like this - just the ash or more it doesn't matter - but everyone is on their doorstep in
a matter of seconds.
Like they're being 'called'.
I know that sounds freaky but the way I look at it we work under her shadow day in and day out, and you know as well as I do when you see something
every day - you 'stop' seeing it. It becomes so common.
But not Etna.
All she has to do is pass a little wind and WHAM - everyone in town (small town) but everyone in town is out on their terraces, doorsteps, whatever -
minus fear in the air.
It's almost, I hesitate to say, but it's almost reverence.
I know it is for me.
Thanks for your post - hopefully you can come back and visit the Island again someday. You know they say once you've been here you have to come
