Dive into the Unknown

"Would you please meet me by the water, baby?
We'll have a really good time
Would you please meet me by the water, baby?
'Cause I can't get you off of my mind"

Rachael yamagata - Meet Me by the Water

 

I truly love this picture. These guys were sliding down a huge rock at a waterfall. There was a tiny pool of water just down the rock - one must have guts to slide and jump into that small space shared with old twiested branches, loads of rocks and other native flora. In a way, I was tantalized by these guys - there were four of them - having that much fun surfing down the rocks to take a huge leap into the unknown. That's basically what my life is turning into right know - a leap into uncharted lands - and yes, I do appreciate the metaphor.

 

Plus, it's a picture I am proud of having taken. Wink

I like the picture too, Ms. Almeida. Glad you went with b&w here.
I find teh lyrics of Rachael Yamahata's song a bit dull and cheesy, though, but I see you are a big fan. smile
Tell me about the leap you're taking.
Renata Almeida: The lyrics are pretty cheesy, but it does not make such a difference when you get them as a second language experience - words tend to have a different "dimension" when they are from another language. Anyway, I was listening to it while uploading the picture and it seemed a good companion to the picture - it fitted my mood... I like Rachael, she has a kind of rusky voice, appreciate. As for the leap - well, I left the coordination of my course and came back to my old role of a teacher. I got a public job, as a teacher as well, and I am pretty close to get back into my university masters. I am awfully glad I can barely explain how happy I am...and free, and all. I'll let you know more about it as I'll be ┬┤posting ┬┤pictures of this series!
