3-12-12 Water

When you look at that nature world it becomes an icon, it becomes a holy picture that speaks of the origins of the world. Almost every mythology sees the origins of life coming out of water. And, curiously, that’s true. It’s amusing that the origin of life out of water is in myths and then again, finally, in science, we find the same thing. It’s exactly so. – Joseph Campbell

Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans. – Jacques Cousteau

All day I face the barren waste/ Without a taste of water/ Cool water/ Old Dan and I/ Our throats slate dry/ Our spirits cry out for water/ Cool clear water/ Keep on movin’ Dan/ Some devils had a plan/ Buried poison in the sand/ Don’t drink it man/ It’s in the water/ Cool clear water/ In my mind/ I see A big green tree/ And a river flowin’ free/ Waitin’ up ahead/ For you and me/ Cool clear water – Bob Nolan/Revised by Joni Mitchell

I went to St John The Divine today, I wanted to see their exhibit The Value of  Water(website) before it closes on 3/25/12. If you are in the NYC Metro area, I strongly recommend a visit.

      • We go about once a year…usually in the fall. My visit is not complete without going. So for the past 10 years, I have been visiting one of my favorite places.

        This year we are going to Ireland in June…hope I have time to go by Walden’s Pond on my way back home.
