In Sandro Chia’s, “Water Bearer” we’re met with broad brush color and a feeling of joy and determination in service. The subject is wholly engaged in the tedious carrying of a fish, its purposes unknown. Despite the bright sky, the work certainly isn’t glamorous. What is he working towards? What fish are you carrying, and who is it for? How do we respond when our responsibilities are as large (or larger than) we are? Who do we serve, and why? What gets us out of bed in the morning and leads us towards the promise of bright skies in our service?
