Water really is fasinating. Never mind that it's one of the most important ingredients to life on our planet. In a way, it's almost like people with our endless variety of moods and personalities.

Depending on the time, the place, the influence of the environment, water can be warm or cold. A pool, mirror smooth and silent in a morning slumber, can seep into your heart and bring a peace that can at least for a moment hold back the cacophony of the world.

The crash of ocean waves is like a symphony of fluid drums keeping pace with a giant hearbeat from the depths. Think of being in a boat on a lake in the middle of a warm summer day, gently rocking back and forth, cradled in a soft embrace. Or the vibrating roar of whitewater tearing it's way through a canyon, sucking the breath from the air.

It sustains our cities, irrigates our crops, baptises our children and sometimes sweeps away our homes. Gentle or harsh, frequently unpredictable and so very, very necessary. Water really is fasinating.
