Standing on the shore of Summersville Lake as it returns to winter pool is a surreal feeling. Knowing that this was once farms and forests makes me feel as though a grave is being opened before my eyes to reveal bones of stone. I’m drawn into the world of the past as I wonder about the conversations spoken on trails that have been washed away from decades of flooding. The trails are gone but the voices still echo near the foundation of a silo on the distant shore. Their words are indistinct but the tone is one of family and friendship enjoyed as a hard day’s work comes to a welcomed close above the river. Other voices come from a general store as horses trot by the doorway while neighbors make plans for a harvest celebration. Clouds roll through the October sky to greet the geese in formation as they travel south. The geese honk to each other and on the ground below a whimsical child responds with the bulb horn of his father’s model T. Are there ghosts in the bottom of the lake? Or are they just echoes of the heart longing for a connection to the past?
Don’t take a single moment for granted friends and be blessed throughout your days .
