Cool Water








This week I give you a picture of what this planet is all about, or at least what makes life possible, water. This week the G20 countries will meet in London and environmental protest organisations will be there to remind the delegates of the climate situation.

So I thought it might be appropriate to display an image of free-flowing water that has kept a nearby watermill wheel spinning for centuries. In particular if you enlarge the picture you will see all the wonderful colours reflected in the water. Water is beautiful.

I think water may become the new reason to fight wars in the not too distant future

I love water; anywhere in any form. I love the coolness of the summer rain and the beauty of new snow. I love the singing of a small stream or the roar of the raging ocean.
Water is indeed beautiful and every time I open my tap and clear water comes out, ready for me to drink, I feel incredibly privileged.
I hope many more generations will be able to experience this kind of privilege in the future.

Love the beautiful picture.;))

Veronica - I'm afraid you might be right.

Protege - You write like a poetic philosopher, very well put.

That is beautiful. Did you take the photo yourself?

Great picture. You're so right - water is a precious commodity.
