There is this sound, this voice... those vibrations that moves the earth and moves people. And it changes you.
My grandmother told me once when she heard this voice.

She was a little baby playing outside at the garden in Mexico, and she said that suddenly the ground started moving. She heard my greatgrandmother screaming asking her not to move; and then she heard a loud, deep crack from below... and the earth opened right in front of her.

I guess people listen to this sound or voice in their dreams, when someone cries or laughs, when the earth changes. when something outside or inside them moves.

It never stays quiet.
