Nothing Much

There’s nothing much to water. No fat, no carbs, no salt, no sugar, little taste. Frozen, vapor, or liquid, there’s not much to it.

Yet water is the single most essential element for life. It comprises most of our bodies and much of the world. Trekking across the desert, we ration our water assertively. In our exploration of the cosmos, we ardently seek water. Farmers carve into earth to plant seeds only once water has been located. From divining rods to space ships to artesian wells, mankind has always yearned for water.

When our body is parched, it’s water we crave to restore it.

When our thirst is deep, it’s water we demand to slake it.

When our skin is grimy, it’s water we require to clean it.

When our souls ascend, it’s water we choose to honor the journey.

Water is everything.

So tell me – what’s the water of your story?
