Lakeview is a beautiful town that is both unique and even peculiar. Unique because the town has no name. And yet, it has a name that it draws from the lake. Peculiar because of that funny synergy that unites the town and the lake. Without this curious synergy, the town would not exist. Yet without it, the lake would not exist. How do we separate the lake from the town or the town from the lake without inflicting mutual damage to both? This reminds us of that beauty from W.B. Yeats: How can we know the dancer from the dance?
