Whitson: Situational Composure
Anger is an emotion that is much like flowing water; there's nothing wrong with it, in any given situation, as long as you let it flow. To hate is to become like stagnant water; anger that you deny yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, poisonous, deadly as does hate.
Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow. Remain composed. Become enlighten and gain strength.
Thank you Linda Whitson for being the model for this piece inspired by a collection of photographs found on the internet pertaining to drowning.
