A Steady, Clear Current

They say when you die your life flashes before your eyes. I wonder sometimes what I might see in that moment.

Tea in an antique cup at my Gramma's. The outline of a snow angel in a patch of heavy snow. A Costa Rican downpour. My Dad in his sailing hat. Mum with a spray bottle pointed at him. My nieces and nephews playing in the waves. The epic silhouette of a blue whale gliding below a boat.

Today, on World Water Day we take time to talk about and act to conserve a precious resource. And while we acknowledge water's necessity for our survival, a pause too in tribute to the important role it plays in our fundamental happiness. As for me, it's the canvas upon which floats a happy, lucky and blessed life.
