As I turned the bend and rode away from that weird eerie part of the lake, I found myself struggling to remember the Our Father prayer. Mind you, I haven't prayed since 8th grade Catholic School. Then I just said to myself, ''Shake it off. It was just your bad vision. ''
Out of pure curiosity, I just got home from work a little while ago & Googled, ''Ghosts of Lake Merritt''. I really didn't find anything relevant, BUT... When I clicked on ''Images''
and the first image was HIM! Same hat, same vibe. Went to a few websites to find out more info and supposedly a lot of people see him around the lake.|
name was Reginald Lockett (1947-2008). He was a poet, activist, performer, and local legend during changing times; he was a big part of Oakland. So much so, Mayor Dellums made May 22nd. Reginald Lockett Day.|
Well, normally I'd be scared outta my mind right now, well, I kinda am, still can't sleep... But I actually feel honored and privileged to have experienced such a unique encounter with a great spirit & legend from another time.
