proof




When my head is full and my heart is hurting, I need the lake. I need the lake because it claps and waves and pours out. It is music and art and an open willingness. When I think I've figured it all out and my end answers bring pain, the lake laughs with its ever-changing redemption, rolling over the rocks and springing up, alive like its breathing and talking. The great pretender, the lake says watch this, and then steals the thunder from the sky and tosses up some rain.



I need the lake because it is proof. That there is always a washing away and a miracle.

Great photos. There is always redemption and a chance to move forward, stumbling or not, toward the person we want to become.

Becca said...

I need a rowdy lake like that - much more fulfilling than the silent-depth kind. (Also - I adore that last shot.)

Great photos! And a nice little reminder. :)

I too go to water at these times. I love water photos, water music, water smells, and the way water feels.
Great post.

Why do so many thoughts end in pain? I agree, the sound of water helps. Love you!

Lovely, and true. There's a reason why water images permeate the Bible.
