WPC: United by H20

The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea. ~Isak Dinesen

Our world is united by water.

Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.~Nelson Mandela
But we, the people who live on this earth, are divided.  Fighting battles that are thousands of years old.

Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.~W. H. Auden
If only we could focus on what unites us, what makes us all human, what we need to thrive and be happy.

Instead of what divides us.

The foolish are like ripples on water, For whatsoever they do is quickly effaced; But the righteous are like carvings upon stone, For their smallest act is durable.~Horace

Here’s my wish for this week, after a weekend of Hurricane Matthew that rampaged through Haiti and the East Coast, and a barrage of political battles that leave many of us here in America reeling with disgust and disappointment.  Here’s my attempt to remind us of our capacity to uplift and support each other, instead of tearing each other down.

    • Thanks so much, Sally. They were shot over many years. I pulled them together just for this challenge. With filters/effects in post processing the shots are dramatically different from the originals and bring out depths/shades/tones. It’s like going into the dark room–a bit!
