Through the maze of scattered statues, the guide walked us to an artificial lake, a rectangle, its water dark.
“This is the Sacred Lake of Karnak. It was famous in its time. Childless women traveled miles in the hope these waters would make them fertile.”
A fun fact to know, yes—but pregnancy was not in the cards for me at this time. Just to be safe, though, I took a turn around the lake, stopped briefly and then took another full circle around it.
I sometimes think of that day at the lake when I visit with my two sons.
