I took this photo on the shore of Soap Lake, in the state of Washington. It is a mineral-rich lake which locals claim has healing properties.
Good text has texture. With editing, it is polished, shiny as the rocks and the surface of the water, but holds sustenance as the mud seen here, saturated with minerals and moisture.
Good text draws us in as a cool, refreshing body of water, encompassing us wholly, entirely.
Good text nourishes us, as this particular lake can do, as does the sun which reflects upon it.
I like the way you’ve linked the natural world to the textual world – our context.
Great photo and I like the connection you have made. For me, I can relate to the nourishing and healing properties of reading text. There are a few books, which have personal significance to me that I turn to when I am feeling down or in need of inspiration.
