A Playful Moment in the Life of Water -Perspective 2
Auburn State Recreational Area, CA MAR 2015 A river; water molecules traveling in unison; herded by rock and dirt; their progress blocked but not deterred. They flow until captured and stored; until they drift apart, their individual courses changed to serve the purposes of nature, or of human civilization. But here, in unrestricted freedom, they frolic, they crash, they splash and foam. Basking in early morning light, they appear to enjoy the moment unperturbed; as if they know they can play now, before they must get to work. They will do their part then some day will be reunited in the vast ocean, carried into the sky, and begin the journey anew. Such is the life of water.
