Peter Grimmett '19 It’s 5:30 a.m., and I have been paddling for twenty minutes. My kayak is the only thing disturbing the placid lake’s surface, and no one else is awake. Forty minutes ago I awoke to the buzzing of my alarm and did not hesitate to leave the comfort behind and embrace the morning chill. Now my pants are half-soaked and my arms greatly fatigued, yet I push forward with greater force. I have reached my favorite spot and know that the fish are down the...
