When it comes to the fine art of navigating water, I imagine I could learn a thing or two from these lily pads. I envy their ability to weather the uneven waves; particularly during a canoeing incident which involved getting stuck on an island, seizing the means of production, and slicing a leg open.

I took this photo in the few tranquil moments before said… incident. You can read more about that here

Lily pads are truly remarkable. The contrast of their reds on the icy blue lake made for quite the compelling sight, as they rode the winds and tides with ease.

I’m curious to hear from you. Do you have any unfortunate or hilarious stories of your tranquility shattered? Drop them in the comments below! -MC
