Advice from a Lake - Make positive ripples!
There are so many sizes of lakes each with their own character. Starting with a tarn which can be just feet across and less than a foot deep and revealed as the snow melts in the high mountains. Then a pond, which is a manageable thought and which a pebble, on a calm day, will send ripples across. Ah yes, the lake can be large, well very large. Lake Baikal in Russia contains 20% of the world's fresh surface water... more than all five Great Lakes in the US. Think back to your favorite lake. Hear the sounds. Remember the feel of the water. The sights and smells. A lake is a marvelous thing.
