If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.

WATER FOR THE MIND
I plucked this photo from a garden full of such beauties, thinking how similarwater droplets are to words.
Isolated beads of water serve little purpose but to evaporate and begin the cycle again.
Strung together, however, they rush in a stream of nourishment for all life forms.
Words in isolation are much the same.
Each has shape, definition, but remains static until joined with others in phrases, sentences,
essays, books of fact and fiction, poetry, and the soaring words of song.
Worthy words are not found only in college tomes and ancient scrolls.
Who among us has not been touched by reading the words of a love note,
get well card, or expression of sympathy?
COME DRINK FROM STREAMS OF WORDS, AND THRIVE!
