Water, desire, and other news

Water; what we’re wishing for right now in this heat wave. Praying for a small weather front to bring us cool, fresh air and rain. It’s turning out to be a long, hot summer--in many ways…

In other news:
Astronomers believe they’ve seen light created by galaxies 13 billion years ago. That would be before our galaxy even existed.

A rare ghost orchid has been found growing in a cypress tree in a nature preserve in Florida. I read the book, "The Orchid Thief" about avid orchid collectors, particularly John Laroche, who was arrested for stealing rare orchids in a nature preserve. Then we saw the movie, which, in my opinion, sucked. But in both the book and the movie, the ghost orchid symbolizes desire, obsession with what you can’t quite obtain.

However, if you’ve always wanted to become a famous singer without performing on stage, it is indeed attainable! Make a trip to India. A TV station there is filming "Bathroom Singer," a reality show featuring a singing contest where the contestants sing in their showers.

And that brings us back to water…
