On Relaxing on a Lake

This summer I've had the opportunity and privilege to spend significant time on small lakes. I've always known this to be fun, being from Michigan and all, but I think I've recently developed a new appreciation for such activities. The peace and quiet is special. It provides a seemingly domestic calm that is unlike spending time by a large body of water. I personally, feel more ownership over the space. As though it can be conquered, especially in a quiet situation like we were just in. We owned this lake. When we were reading, everyone was reading and when we were boating, everyone was out of the waters. Or, so it felt.

I imagine there to be a lot of small lake summers in my future.


  1. there are no small lakes here in mexico but the pacific ocean suffices

  2. This is true. Well, don't get me wrong, I love the Ocean, especially in Mexico!
