Today I was at Sun Moon Lake, in central Taiwan. It's the largest lake in Taiwan and home to the aboriginal Thao tribe. It was very peaceful walking around the lake at this hour (around 6:00am) ... No boats were in the water, so it was very still. I only saw a few people around -- mostly timeless, old looking men doing Tai Chi on the shore. I happened across this spot, not far from Chiang Kai Shek's personal Pagoda. I don't think I've ever felt such a sense of calm as I felt standing here. It felt like I was meditating just by looking at the lake in silence. If my experience was any indicator, I'm guessing people living by lakes have lower blood pressure than city folks. ;-)
