Why Water Matters

Early Morning #PostCardMoments from the Lake
It’s another one of those #PostcardMoments from an early morning cycle along the lake. Sorry if boredom might be setting in but once again, this invaluable element wins out, even over the slowly turning foliage. And there’s always time for garden and design discussions, which leads us to that million dollar question - why does water really matter to us?  It’s not a water 101 lesson, although this invaluable resource serves us in so many ways. Our gardens and our reservoirs could definitely use a natural boost of water as this past summer proved a bit stingy on providing it in the way of precipitation. 

But what draws us to these #PostcardMoments from the lake? Can you define or explain that inspirational phenomenon of what leads us to water - that gravitational cause and effect; one that makes us brake and take it in? Margaret Atwood sums it up best – the reason why water matters. Hope you click the like or retweet button if you agree.  

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” 

It seems relevant on this Monday morning as we start off on our work week routines; one more important lesson from the lake. “If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”  That’s all she wrote from Lake Waschacum.
