"The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation."
The Taihu by the Dongshan seemed to be engulfed in heavy fog with visibility almost nil beyond a few hundred metres. The clouds and the horizon had seemed to get lost in the lake. Only some reeds remained close to the banks where on one side lay the road on which we walked.
I'd actually been to the Tai Hu (lake Tai) a couple of years ago while in my bicycling trip but I'd barely remembered until I got to this place this time around.
More about the Taihu according to Wiki:
Lake Tai or Lake Taihu is a large freshwater lake in the Yangtze Delta plain near Shanghai, China. The lake belongs to Jiangsu province and the southern shore forms its border with Zhejiang. With an area of 2,250 square kilometers (869 sq mi) and an average depth of 2 meters (6.6 ft), it is the third-largest freshwater lake in China, after Poyang and Dongting. The lake houses about 90 islands, ranging in size from a few square meters to several square kilometers. Lake Tai is linked to the renowned Grand Canal and is the origin of a number of rivers, including Suzhou Creek. In recent years, Lake Tai has been plagued by pollution as a result of rapid economic growth in the surrounding region.
