There has been a quiet lakeside view in me as my mental picture, where I often hang around.   Not so open and fluid as a river or the sea. It stays still silently to seal my emotional phases as joy, sorrow, and solitude.
This picture of the lake above actually exists nearby the place where I spent my childhood.  Its color looked exactly like this greenish blue.   Since my linguistic ability at that time had not been developed enough to name the view as "beauty", I just kept standing at the lakeside with my eyes widely opened, just like animals instinctively grasp the significance of their existence without a word.   

Lake reminded me of this old song.

"Lake"/Anna Domino 1987
