Morning Mist

Is there anything more free than venturing out on the water?

Dave Andrews

The soft edges of this photograph evoke a dreamlike quality for the viewer. To where will this humble vessel transport its inhabitants today? Is there anything more free than floating over the water? Not for the apostle Peter, whose walk on the wet matter served as the means to faith. Not for characters like Lucy and Edmund, beloved by children the world over for their adventures in C.S. Lewis', Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Not for the ordinary worshiper during mass. Not for the morning adventurer, floating closer to the centre of the lake in search of mercy.
