Giving Water (Justice)

What is justice? Giving water to trees. What is injustice? To give water to thorns. Justice consists in bestowing bounty in its proper place, not on every root that will absorb water. –Rumi

Music: Carla McElhaney, piano | Photographs: Marcelo Montecino

Theme: Carla McElhaney explores the realm of the Justice card through photographs provided by famed Chilean photographer Marcelo Montecino, poetry by Pablo Neruda, texts by Marco Antonio de la Parra, music by J. S. Bach, Frederic Rzewski, and more. The Justice card symbolizes the search for cause and effect, taking responsibility for one's actions, fairness and balance, making intelligent decisions, and karma.
