I remember sitting by the lake, my legs pulled against me in the darkness. The sky flashing above me and the wind whispering through the air. So many feelings in one night... The water glistened with each strike of lightening and shook with each deep rumble of thunder. The grayness of it all was enough to make any and all wonders unparalleled in my mind. I wish I was on a boat in the storm feeling each and every motion of the water. I wish I could have felt it breathe in and out and cradle me in its arms. I wish I could have tasted the moisture in the air and smelled the rain. I know that no matter where I go, whenever I hear the rain that lake is quaking anxiously awaiting my return.
