The Deep Lake

“Once, tired and sweaty on a steep mountain path, I thought it would be nice to take a bath. Just then, I passed a bend in the trail and saw a little valley spread before me. It held a beautiful lake, like a jewel, sheltered by stony peaks at the left and right.”

Thus begins a strange adventure, a fable of fables, as a man takes a bath in a lake of conscious water.

Blending Zen stories with Christian ponderings against the timeless background of nature, The Deep Lake follows the man’s search to help others.
