I like walking on the beach. It’s good for the mind, body, and soul – and refreshing on my feet.
During my time away from home while at the beach as a snowbird, bonding with the sand and water is easy and natural.
As I look upon the gulf, I only see the surface of what to me is so much water. Yet, as compared to the total amount of water on Earth, I only see a few drops.
Humans bond with the love and lore of water in a similar manner as two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom bond to form a molecule of water that we cannot see.
A single drop of water is clearly defined by its smooth shape. Although small, that drop contains a huge number of molecules. But when that drop falls into water, the drop’s shape and identity vanish as it blends with its aqueous kin.
Water – a symbol and a metaphor for many applications in life.
Water – a symbol for health, cleanliness, clarity, emotions, renewal, and spirits.
Water – representing life, birth, fertility, love, purity, energy, and refreshment.
Water – an inspirational journey into the emotional depths of our dreams.
Water – moving water represents the flow of time – the continuity of life.
Water – a fluid that flows and can be still. Even moving water can mystically deliver the contradiction of stillness.
Water – reliable, patient, and resistant – yet, water’s resistance can be very therapeutic.
Water – it’s spiritual – it serves as a symbol for blessings, healing, cleansing, renewal, reflection, purification, remembrance, freedom, and transformation.
Water – the universal solvent allowing our orbiting home to be The Blue Planet – The Blue Marble.
Water – It’s primal – like seeing the deep sea as the depth of Mother Nature’s womb because water as the fountain of life.
Water – serving as a border or an obstacle.
Water – a sign of boundless chaos because it is ungovernable and irrational.
Water – the way it clings to itself and other surfaces – on a newly waxed car – on the end of a blade of grass as a single drop ready to fall.
Water – associated with many activities of human life – water for drinking, washing, cooking, bathing, shaving, cleaning, irrigating, and more – let alone all the industrial applications such as processing, diluting, cooling, and many more. Water for recreational events such as swimming, fishing, boating, skiing, diving, kayaking, and snorkeling.
Water – whose action includes flowing, falling, splashing, flooding, cascading, freezing, condensing, and evaporating.
Water – for fire fighting, street cleaning, fountains, toilets, parks, industry, hospitals, laundries, golf courses, hotels, car washes, beauty shops, barbershops, health clubs, and more.
Water – that necessity for all life – for dairies, livestock, crops, grasses, trees, shrubs, flowers, and pets.
Water – to transport ships, boats, and ferries with people, supplies, and goods.
Water – having a variety of sounds such as crashing waves, babbling brooks, continual drips, and steady rains tapping on our windows and roofs.
Water – a flowing medium with defined properties forming puddles, pools, springs, creeks, rivers, streams, ponds, lakes, bogs, sounds, gulfs, seas, oceans, clouds, rain, hail, sleet, stream, fog, steam, vapor, glaciers, aquifers, and polar ice caps, and more.
Water – a flowing liquid subject to tides, waves, ripples, and currents.
Water – that constant foundation of life and universal solvent that dissolves, dilutes, absorbs, reflects, refracts, and transports.
Water – forming springs, creeks, streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, bays, sounds, gulfs, seas, oceans, clouds, rain, snow, hail, sleet, steam, fog, vapors, glaciers, aquifers, and polar ice caps
Water – important – and 97 percent of Earth’s water is the saltwater of the seas and oceans.
Water – the valuable substance making up about 60% of the average adult human body.
Water is a precious resource – a resource necessary for human life.
Water – whose boiling point and freezing point at the foundation of Celsius temperature.
Water – seemingly so much water, yet in other ways, so little. But on this day, I’m happy to think about water because I like walking on the beach, which is good for the mind, body, and soul – and refreshing on my feet.
