Cool Clear Water

"There is no small pleasure in sweet water."
Epistoloe Ex Ponto (II, 7, 73)

There are a lot of things I take for granted. Probably at the top of that list are good health, plenty of food and good clean water. I think that must be why I cried tears of joy when I read The Soaring Impulse today. Please go there and join in the joy of people who have running water for the first time in years - maybe ever.

Dr. Maithri Goonetilleke believes love can change the world, and that's what people from around the globe did. They contributed enough money through Maithri's Soaring Impulse and Possible Dreams International web sites to make this well possible. That's a lot of love. It's proof to me that little by little people who care can make a difference.

I'm grateful to be reminded of this simple truth.

Wishing for you a great big glass of cold clean water. Drink up.

Merry ME

a timely reminder of what we take so much for granted in the west.
and as ever a soft caress to remind us that the world is changing through this medium.
