This post is part of Stream of Consciousness Saturday hosted by LindaGHill. Head on over to her blog if you would like to participate. The prompt for today is Sum/Some.
Sum is for Sumatra. Sumatra is one of Indonesia’s largest islands. Indonesia has over 130 active volcanos. One is erupting now. Mount Sinabung in North Sumatra. Another Indonesian island, the island of Krakatoa ( Krakatau) was obliterated by a volcanic eruption in 1883. The explosions from that eruption were heard up to 3000 miles away. Sumatran volcanos are part of the Ring of Fire which in a horseshoe shaped ring that hugs the Pacific rim. Mount St. Helens is a volcano in the “ring.”
All this talk about volcanos is making me think of a funny little film “Joe versus the Volcano” (1990) with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. You will have to watch it if you are interested because I do not want to create any spoilers. A trivia question for those of you who may have seen the film. What is Waponi Woo?
I think I will enjoy a cup of Java and listen to Johnny Cash while I await your response.
