Along the shale cliffs of the Erie shore, Jay Terrelli found fossils of a 'terrible fish' around 1867.  It was some time ago, in the millions of years that the Dunkleosteus fish, with shearing jaws, was the dominant predator, appearing in sizes much larger than the Great White Shark.

There is great wonder in this area of the great lakes such as the 'Dunklie' fish of yore, but now, at 5 am, the police were also in great wonder.  "Who are these people (three of us - two in robes) taking to the road at this un-godly hour?"

So we explained to the two officers and they were impressed; being who they are they must most certainly have a last word, "Please just walk on the side of the road against the traffic."  They were nice about it.

The summer heat is on.  It's Memorial Day weekend.  Passions are at a peak with traffic.  Streams of bikers make a presence as they - the bikers - rev up their engines and bomb away.

Some motorists take notice.  I receive the occasional honk.

What becomes relieving is the scent of the honey suckles that are thrown out into the air in as much as the wild mustard plants.  Unfortunately we cannot reciprocate and toss some fragrance back to them.

Our hosts Mike and Paurnamasi, from Cleveland, have been looking after our food and lodging needs.

The basketball play-offs are on and it is between two teams, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors.  Even within the devotee community, everyone is rooting for their own team. For myself, more subtly, I would like to see the Canadian team win!

May the Source be with you!
