During my surgeries for breast cancer and the chemotherapy that followed, I often found myself visualizing light -- light coming from darkness, light that was full of color and energy, playful light, healing light. I tried to imagine myself floating in light. Those images came back to me during early morning swims in the summer of 2003, as I tried to regain my strength. I was intrigued by how the light changed its shape and character as it danced on both surface and depth. As I cut through the water, the play of light gentled my body and buoyed me up. "WaterWorks: A Healing" is an attempt to capture that part of my journey.
