This represents the feeling of being beneath the water. In the summer of 2009 there was a major hot spell, setting temperature records in my area. I found myself swimming regularly at a local lake. I’d dive in and then look to the surface, I would think if I don’t get up fast enough, will I drown? The same can applied to the burdens of life, could I let go of the things that weigh me down so I can get to the surface. However, amidst the panic there did exist a sense of calm, serenity and solitude. As the imagery reflects the view from below looking up, I constantly ask myself am I rising or falling? Its a day by day experience.
