One of the rules that Lisa and I have as far as the lake is concerned is that we try to avoid the holidays. We were originally planning on coming up here last weekend but then we remembered that it was going to be Labor Day weekend. We went this week specifically so we could feel that we had the lake to ourselves. There are other people around, of course. The lake is never really deserted. But it’s nothing like the way things get on a holiday weekend. Instead, things are very peaceful and being up here has been very relaxing and centering.
Avoid the holidays.
Listen to the water.
There’s no better way to do it.
