Peacemakers Update, Cleanup and Solstice Celebration

I went to the Peacemaker's Sanctuary at Onondaga Lake today and was relieved to see that the water has substantially subsided since my post April 20th that the planned Earth Day Gathering was cancelled because of high water.  The water is still high, but substantially down since then.

The bad news is that the old wooden bench that was secured to a tree to prevent it from floating away is still not in place. I have not spoken to Debbie Dennis of Onondaga Parks Dept about this since she told me a do gooder had cut the ropes down that secured the bench and placed in a safe location. She told me they would find it, or replace it. We also hope to buy another bench to add to the location.

The good news is that the water has substantially subsided and that the bench we purchased last year is back in place. The vibe is still very positive, to extremely positive. The vortex and vortex ring near the bench are still there. SWEET!

Here are some points of note:

  • We will be gathering this week or next week to clean up the area. Email me or post a comment below if you are interested in helping out.
  • Solstice Celebration--We will be gathering either June 20 or 21st to celebrate the solstice. The high point is June 21st at 4:54 AM.
Please visit this delightful sanctuary and add to its love.

The pictures below tell the story of the sanctuary's current condition.

The water along the Lakeland Trail, what we call the Stairway to Heaven because of all of the Ley Lines that intersect it, was high.

 This spillover on the trail is very common in the spring; but it was larger than normal.

 I don't remember the trail be blocked like this before.

 The Peacemaker's bench is back in place.

 Looking towards Syracuse you can see that there is still quite a bit of water there.

 The red X marks where the old wooden bench used to be.

The area of water around the overflow pipe was still high. 

 A rat of mallard ducks where spending time in the body of water in front of where the wooden bench used to be.

There was a misty drizzle and fog over the lake. Very few others were there, in what should have been a busy Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. It was very peaceful. I had a very nice meditation.
