Citizen of the Month

the writing and photography of Neil Kramer



My trip to New Zealand was all about water.   Without water, we would all die of thirst.   But don’t try to grab it with the tense hand; it will laugh at you with disdain. It is a chameleon that takes many forms and shapes, always moving. Only a fool tries to control it.  Water runs fast.  Water can calm — the gentle brook, and then belittle you with a ocean’s tsunami, swallowing you whole.  Water is sex and religion.   Sweet wetness and holy baptism.  Water is risk.   Water is mysterious and powerful, like a woman.

    ” . . . try to grab it with the tense hand; it will laugh at you . . . ” I loved a drop of water once. He rejoined the ocean. I still hate the ocean, even as I’m grateful for it.
