In an effort to notice more of the ordinary in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday. The idea is to take photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment, by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in. What have you noticed this week?
Have a look at what others have noticed this week:
Maggie at Farmers Wife Day by Day
Karen at Random Reflections
This week what I have noticed is the rushing water all about. It has been raining rather heavily for two days so with the accompanying snow & ice melt, everything is busting to capacity. Our little village is built around a conservation area that was once home to a woollen mill, which is part of the village's beginning. Part of the mill's origins is a dam which is still in use today to control the water flow down steam, not provide power to a mill. Standing beside or over the old dam truly gives me a sense of the power of water.
Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.
