Three women sit in conversation in a lakeside house. Their conversation seems not to connect them. The tension between them is heightened by the beauty of the water. Living near water influences our psyche. It heals us and soothes us; we are grateful for the presence of its ever changing beauty. We are excited by its vitality as it reacts to the weather and enthralled by its inscrutability when it lies motionless and glassy on windless calm days.
The lake reflects the land and sky, but it reflects much more than the physical world.
It reflects our thoughts and behaviours, showing us our failings and prejudices and heightening our triumphs.
