I needed a break from things this afternoon, and it was a gorgeous day, so I made my way to Frank Holten State Park in East St. Louis for a real lunch break. I found a picnic table in the shade next to the lake. After about 15 minutes I saw a duck gracefully gliding down the center of the lake against the wind. It was in no hurry, and didn’t seem to have any real objective. It just seemed to be out enjoying the day, too. Life is good like that!
