Our images have deep meaning to us and sometimes this meaning changes. When I made this image it was all about freedom: I was able to go to a place, get in the water, fight for the image I wanted. I got very wet and happy making it. I also destroyed a camera in the process, which I knew was a possibility. The point is that I could and I did. These last 6 weeks have reminded me that old freedoms cannot be taken for granted, at least the freedoms we have become used to. In my first post about my detached retina I reflected that I may have to start playing another game and that I did not really want to. Well, playing that new game would bring new freedoms but I am not being forced to be ready for those games just yet so I bring you this image as a “reflection” of my thanks and gratitude that new rules don’t need to be learned just yet. Old freedoms are still intact and I intend to enjoy them for as long as I can. I also reflect that as we grow older the rules subtly change … Oh, what lessons I have learned. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement!
