Life is … #9

Life is …. a lake.

Created from the eruption of natures strongest emotions: love, hatred or insecurity.

Growing and changing with each passing season, a reflection of all that is incorporated or excluded.

Some retain their organic and highly nutritious qualities: others become bogs highly acidic, liveable only by the hardy and fastidious.

Both sustain some form of life, one more inviting and ‘safe’ than the other.

Each path is shaped by what we release at high tides and what we keep/accept at low tides.

Thus it is very important to protect your lake. Lakes naturally become bogs/ wetlands after thousands of years enough time to live and willing transcend to the eternal. Under man’s influence they become bogs, marshes, fenland etc. sooner than expected.


Hi there, thank you for stopping by today. This is the ninth edition of my ‘life is’ series where I try to relate life to different concepts/ideas in society. Would love to hear your thoughts on life is … a lake.

      1. We are mobile lakes indeed, and I’ll remember that after reading your post. My book is coming along, and I hope to get a lot more done over the next few weeks. So I won’t be posting too often – just enough to keep my blog ticking over. Thank you for asking, Chioma.
