Artists, designers, photographers and illustrators all strive every day for the perfect combination of color, composition, visual and layout.
Nowhere is this whole concept epitomized better than in the balancing act of rock vs wind vs current in the Remic Rapids, Ottawa River, Canada.
Because all who view these creations know that eventually; perhaps in a few moments, days, or during the ravages of winter - they fall. It's meant to be.
We all set things up so they work and none of us should be surprised when the wind or waves come along to say "Ha! Gotcha!"
And then, with renewed energy, we begin again.
Footnote: Although I am not a Buddhist, I note with interest that impermanence is understood by Buddhists as one of the three marks of existence.
