I stayed away from the lake Monday as advised; last year I witnessed a guy on a bike being pulled into the lake by high waves and strong winds. He ignored the warnings; I would never take that chance, I stayed away until today; I ventured out for a bike ride on the lake. Once I arrive at Fullerton I could feel and see the energy left behind by the gusting winds and high waves forty eight hours earlier that energy stretched all the way down to the field museum. It felt peaceful yet a bit eerie; seaweed, rocks and shells now covered the bike path, causing me to peddle slower to avoid getting a flat. As I peddled along I thought about all the people on the East Coast and the complete loss and devastation they are suffering; I said a prayeror them all. Then I became fixated on a small row boat painted tan and turquoise, lying off in the distance! I get a little excited as I peddle closer; I’m a lover of turquoise and wear the stone when exercising as it provides me with strength and energy, so the bright color caught my eye immediately. I hop of my bike and walk over to this beautiful little row boat off to the side, anchored with one blue sand bag; it appeared to have not been disturbed by the wind and waves that Sandy delivered, it appeared at peace. ~T
