We often find that life consists of cycles of tension and release.
Using the metaphor of water drops riding on the surface tension of a pool of water, we can see
that the tension eventually releases and the water drop coalesces with the pool,
releasing a smaller droplet.
When we experience cycles of tension and release, do we emerge somehow reduced?
Are we less than we once were because of ongoing cycles of tension and release?
Does experiencing this representation activate the cycle of tension and release in the viewer,
or does it provide a meditative moment of respite?
