It’s wonderful that I was able to capture a moment that captivated me. Sometimes we’re drawn to things without necessarily understanding why, and that’s okay. The act of creating the image can be a way of expressing and exploring that feeling.
Art can often tap into our subconscious and evoke emotions that we may not fully understand. It’s possible that the movement and sound of the water in the stream resonated with you in a way that you can’t quite put into words. Alternatively, it could be that the image itself, with its interplay of light and shadow and the juxtaposition of the flowing water against the still rocks, simply struck you as visually interesting.
Regardless of the reason, it’s important to continue to trust your instincts and allow yourself to be drawn to the things that inspire you. You never know where those creative impulses might lead you.
However, it’s possible that you were captivated by the water in the stream because of the beauty and peacefulness it can bring. Water is often associated with serenity and tranquility, and watching the flow of water can be very calming and meditative. Additionally, water has many other symbolic meanings, such as renewal, purification, and life, which may resonate with you on a deeper level. It’s also possible that there was something specific about the way the water was moving or reflecting light that caught your attention and made the moment particularly captivating. Ultimately, the reason why you were drawn to the water in the stream is something only you can fully understand, and it may be worth exploring your thoughts and emotions around the experience further.
I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing;
wait without love
for love would be love of the wrong thing;
there is yet faith, but the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought;
so the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
-T.S. Eliot, Four Quarters
