I was not paying attention. Suddenly people were talking about the end of another decade. I asked myself, is that right? Is the decade really over?
I traveled to Brighton Beach at dawn Tuesday to catch the final sunrise of the decade. It was nice to see the sun again after the winter storm that hit our area over the weekend. The sun rose, waves crashed ashore, and the cool blue light gave way to the warm light of a new day.
Just another day on the shores of Lake Superior. It was an enlightening experience realizing that the natural world seemed not to recognize the end of the decade, either.
