While visiting the Paris Daily Photo site, I saw that the theme for April 1st for the Daily Photo group blogs is water. So, I’ll join in the fun – add my interpretation of H2O. If you look closely, you may find a fish in there somewhere. Check out the PDP for an amazing photo, and for links to all the other Daily Photo blogs.

A few meditations about water…

His laughter, which was never far below the surface of his conversation, now sparkled like a splash of water in sunlight.
~ Joseph Lelyveld

Don't you realize that the sea is the home of water? All water is off on a journey unless it's in the sea, and it's homesick, and bound to make its way home someday.
~ Zora Neale Hurston

In Amsterdam the water is the mistress and the land the vassal. Throughout the city there are as many canals and drawbridges as bracelets on a Gypsy's bronzed arms.
~ Felix Marti-Ibanez

If American English could develop a vocabulary and way of thinking like Hopi, there would be one word meaning: "A stone is skimming across the water’s surface, it is approaching dematerialization, there is no longer stone or water, the mind where the stone & water skim dissolves in sunlight, there is only the skimming movement when you’re breathing."
Such a word remains timelessly current.
~ Norman Weinstein
