But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. Amos 5:24
On our way back from visiting my elderly mother in Napanee earlier this week we stopped at a spot where the Salmon River tumbles over a small dam on its way toward Lake Ontario. As we opened the doors of our vehicle we were immediately aware of the sound of the rushing water, and it was music to our ears. When we eventually drove away it was as though we were leaving a stirring concert.
Often I drive to Lakeshore Lodge Point in Prince Edward County where the land juts out into Lake Ontario. I love a windy day when the sound of waves comes from both sides of the point with a different tuning from east and west.
I didn't plan to write a second blog on water in the same week but this is World Water Day and I noticed an event which will take place in Australia today to mark the occasion.
Celebrate World Water Day with immersive compositions exploring the soundscapes of aquatic ecosystems ranging from the sonic complexity of the Great Barrier Reef to melting glaciers in Antarctica.
