Jill Bates –
I grew up on the water. It has been my entertainment and my muse. We are, each of us, composed of water, For me it is a living thing full of living things. It has rhythm and strength. Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. It teaches…if you can’t go through an obstacle go around it. Water does.
