Where time stands still

May 12, 2010



Birds cawing.


Deafening roar.

I had not been happier.

And the emotion was duplicated everywhere I looked. People of all ages, ethnicities and gender grinning from ear to ear; noses red; hands frozen; eyes welling with emotion. Wet from head to toe. But feeling fulfilled. Content. Satiated.

Such force.

The fury.

The power.

The speed.

The sheer volume.

Being in the middle of a hurricane must feel like this. The wind slapping your body. The water jolting all your senses. The cold numbing you. But I have never felt more awake. More excited. More exhilarated. More elated.

The mist.

The sun shining through.

The perfect rainbow.

The stray tributaries.

The sparkling water.

The foam.

The twinkle in strangers’ eyes. The warmth in our hearts reflected in our smiles. The overwhelming emotions. The feeling that can only come when you realize the true force of Mother Nature. The sense of greatness. And being minuscule.

Time stopped for me at Niagara Falls.

      You have to experience it, V. Pictures and videos don't do it justice. I hope you can visit sometime, soon.
