While gazing at the currents in Lake Memphremagog, without realizing it, I became captivated by the flow of water over a stone. It was a windy afternoon and the water kept gushing in rhythms of swirls as it intervened with the stone, or was it the stone that intervened with the flow of water… However it was the stone that I identified with – my body became the stone and I was enveloped by its folds, wrinkles, and ripples. When I became conscious of the experience I ran to get my video camera.
