    What are you doing to honor the value of water?

    Water is essential to life, yet it is taken for granted except during times of drought. Lack of water is a contributor to climate change, and lack of control of water sources causes strife between countries. In our own lives, dirty or contaminated water causes disease and often death. Each of us can find a way to treat water with greater respect and/or care. What change are you making?

    Water is recycled by nature. Purified and re-released into the ecosystem.  The only real pollutants are chemical in nature, and their presence is determined by their respective evaporation points. The lack of clean water may be a complete fallacy except for that.

    Finally, someone is singing in my choir.

    Of the the waste that I see around me..........water waste
    is the one that I can least tolerate.

    People are dying for lack of clean water..........

    misery is born in dirty water.

    I send my ' grey water' to the garden.

    I turn off the faucet while brushing my teeth,
    washing or conditioning my hair, washing dishes.

    I collect the rain, in buckets and barrels.

    It was my long gone, Grandparents, who taught me
    such wise living.........they were so far ahead
    of modern thinking!

    Most people take water for granted, but if ever,
    you have " primed the well" or lived in the desert
    conditions, where it is rationed, you might see
    things differently.

    By drinking it, we really don't value water enough as a part of our health. It does so much that we do not see or even think of. From digestion to good skin to mental health, water is the number one most significant form of self help out there. No books, gurus, religious zealot, or otherwise will ever be able to do what water can do for you.

    Please drink water, you'll feel better I promise. Two liters a day, keeps the doctor away.
