“Anger is like flowing water; there’s nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow. Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, stinky, disease-ridden, poisonous, deadly; that is your hate. On flowing water travels little paper boats; paper boats of forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human.”

Today, an image I made back in the summer, at a local conservation area. The water flows through a small dam and concrete spillway, splashing a concrete pad below. I’ve photographed the chute a few times for the side, but had not considered this view till that day and decided to do a longer exposure to highlight the flow and spray of the water and communicate the energy I saw.
