Wading Bridge, 2015

Water is not necessarily something that I feel safe around, but hearing people in Des Moines express their yearning for these natural spaces reminded me that we cannot only talk about their destruction, we also need to remind ourselves of the beauty and joy that these spaces bring us and remember that that is another reason we struggle for their preservation. Our rivers determine our land, livelihood and lives - and Des Moines’ rivers are a force. Crossing 'Wading Bridge' and getting our feet wet allows us a momentary intimacy with this river.
