Chutes de Plaisance from Summit Media Group on Vimeo.

Just an hours drive East of Ottawa runs Chutes De Plaisance, Québec. Joel Kowalski and Devyn Scott drove up from the Ottawa Valley for a few laps of the drops while water levels held. As the rain let go and a foggy day lingered, we found magic.

Strange feelings. A recent tragedy and a ripple is felt throughout a community as reality sets in. The loss, as with all loss, is dire and felt strongly and the currents seem to move heavy and slow with weighted grievance. It is this weird weight that carries over fields and through the air to the West…where the water in Colorado was running out. The Front Range, however, was still accessible as well as some late-season classics, albeit on the low side considering. However fun it was, or scary, at the end of each day something remained to be desired in some form or another. The mind wanders and gets lost in these tiny cracks and disappears within swells of current and fades away as eventually the light shines through dark enveloping clouds or utter darkness. All the time wanting to know why it had to happen, or what it means because it did. And in faces, something is changed. Maybe you want to cry at first, then you start to laugh, with tears streaming down your face, you are crying and laughing at the same time, and eventually you are sobbing and shaking your head and you start screaming at the sky and pounding your fists. But it is the calm that comes over you eventually, when you know, really, everything is going to be just fine, and you peel out of that eddy and continue downstream.

"The earth is one great sentient being, a planet saturated through and through with man, a live planet expressing itself falteringly and stutteringly; it is not the home of the white race or the black race or the yellow race or the lost blue race, but the home of man and all men are equal before God and will have their chance, if not now then a million years hence." - Henry Miller
