These "captured moments" are some of my best photographs as a amateur photographer. Each of them spoke to me, created a memory, and taught a lesson. In sharing them, I hope you benefit from the lessons learned.
Why is this place such a favorite for me? You may think it has to do with the picturesque nature or simply being outdoors, but that's not it. The soothing sounds of the water flowing over the dam relax me and have taught me much. Let me show you with a question: does it do any good to scoop up water at the dam's bottom to run back to the top side and pour it out again? You are laughing because you realize the answer is no. Why is it, however, that we do not do that with people and issues? When "settled," we keep bring them back later just to watch them flow over the dam one more time. The effort is futile and meaningless. Freedom and relaxation comes through the defining moment of letting those negative instances go over the dam and continue away from you down river. My advice is simple -- let it flow so that, in life, you can grow!
