The Inspiration behind "Treading Water"

Updated: Feb 23, 2023

Suddenly, I was let go from my day job and thus my income and, well, that happened. It has happened before in my life, but the knee-jerk reaction is panic for a bit.

My boyfriend, Ken Franz, is a lover of photography had filled my computer with snapshots of all the places we visit. I saw this photo and I zoomed in on this lovely girl treading water in the middle of this woodland lake, deep in the BC Forest. Oh yes, the water is deep green.

Perfect, I thought to myself. If I am in the middle of a situation and I have a few choices. Flail around screaming, or gently tread water and contemplate.

Peace to you all in your journey.
