This is the dam at Clark's Pond caught in a peaceful moment the other day. Running, trickling water has been known to have a calming effect on certain people. Some people actually add artificial fountains to their backyard gardens. I guess the constant gurgling sound is suppose to add some sort of relaxing effect to their lives. Constant moving water does nothing for me, except to remind of the time we were on vacation in Florida and an April storm flooded our cellar, floated our oil and kerosene tanks, destroyed our furnace and ended up costing us big bucks. Water runs its course. It does whatever it wants. It did that day. That evil spring storm is in our rearview mirror now, but that memory of constant running water provides no real zen moment for us. That day was no high water mark for us. It gave us no comfort at all, but we learned about the power of water that day.
