Saturday commute lxxxii: tossing time

What is more difficult,
to make too much or too
little of the tried and
true temptation to give
tossings to a lake? On
Saturday we hold an an-
cient code, against do-
ing either, playing wil-
ling parts in precious
gravity. We are never
by a lake without infer-
ring the gift, the in-
tention of that body to
dispel any resistance,
to giving it our friend.

    Sure, it's teleology, a
    kind of Whig theory of
    the landscape; or maybe
    Jung or Hobbes has of-
    fered us an answer. But
    we don't lack an answer.
    We answer to the lake.
