What is it about large bodies of water that make me want to sit and linger, relaxing in the soothing rhythmic waves? When I caught sight of the Mississippi River along the Riverwalk in New Orleans I had to stop, pause, and take it all in. The sight. The smell. The sounds.
I love the water.
I could sit and watch it all day. Whether it would be the Mississippi River, Lake Erie or the Atlantic Ocean.
I could have spent every waking minute along the banks of the Mississippi watching the boats come and go.
It’s hard to imagine that something that was so peaceful last week could be so destructive and cause so much devastation this week in the wake of Hurricane Isaac. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected.
