“New Melones Lake” - Calaveras County, CA

 New Melones Lake is perhaps the size of Lake Cachuma, both man-made if I'm correct.  My aunt and uncle took me out on their pontoon boat.  It was a relaxing day in the sun and a picnic on the far side of the lake.  I particularly enjoyed the geology of the area and and the precipitation history told by the lake level markings along the shores.    


It made me wonder what the tell-tale signs I showed that revealed the rich and lean times of my life (not in terms of money, but love or a sense of well-being and purpose).  Probably my weight? Or perhaps how much I paint or write? Maybe both are linked at that.


This is one of my richer years, without a doubt.
