The waters of Buck Lake are cool and clear and restorative. All summer, it’s tempting to go for a swim.
But it’s also a hassle. You need to change your clothes, find someone to guard, bring a towel and most of all, gasp at the transition when the cold water hits.
And yet… no one ever regretted going for a swim in Buck Lake. After a swim, everything is better.
There are lakes, large and small, that we avoid because of the transition.
Back up your hard drive.
Settle a feud.
Write a thank you note.
Clean your closet.
Tell someone you love them.
Go jump in the lake.
