Solitude – Day 4

If you are not careful with time, it will just fly right away from you. I keep going to the visitors center to blog, but unfortunately I keep showing up after five when the doors automatically lock. Oops. I promise I will catch up on yesterdays messages tomorrow. Anyway…

The weather has been so bipolar recently. Yesterday sometime early evening, there was a downpour from a random rain cloud which came out of nowhere. Half of the lake was hit by the rain, but the other half was quite sunny. I was rowing around picking up messages enjoying both rain and shine. It seems these spontaneous storms disappear and bring the most beautiful weather afterward.

Last night, as I was rowing back after the rain, I encountered the most lovely sunset. It began with a sky visually reminiscent of a Byzantine painting with golden rays reflecting off the water. Shortly later, the clouds were glowing with a pink luminescent light. Looking at the clouds filled my mouth with the taste of cotton candy. As the sunset reached a crescendo of dramatic colors and a golden lake, I knew it would fade out from there. And it did…

I read books and scratched mosquito bites until my eyes failed to stay open. Finally, my body shut down and I had a full night of sleep, complete with lucid dreams.
