Drop a pebble in still water and watch the ripples spread.
Gradually the ripples subside and the stillness resumes.
What is left is the memory of the ripples and the motion of the water.
You try to recreate the magic of those perfect ripples by casting another pebble only to find a different outcome, ripples of course, but leaving a different motion and conjuring a different experience. You feel disturbed, unsatisfied, irritated because you wanted those exact ripples that same feeling and feel you got robbed.
It’s unsettling, upsetting and unnerving. You put on a brave smile but you’re not fooling anyone, things are not the same.
Then you reflect on your new reality, your new ripples and the motion of the water, to see a different version of the same truth, it is you who cast the pebble.
