Some places are victims of their own success. Below I zoom in on exactly the same photo of the Alps and Annecy Lake. One might think these are mystical places where true connections with the inner self or the higher realm can be easily established or at least facilitated. I can report that the lake exerts a fascination or an obsession that is hard to describe in words; everyone wants to see “le lac”. The truth is that, given the constant and exasperatingly omnipresent crowd on the shore of the lake, I have no place where to have a walk during my leisure time. This is a totally new experience for me; having nature walks is my main way to unwind and rebalance, so it hurts… I practically have no place where to throw a needle, if I may say so.
