What’s your favorite form of water?
Isn’t that a weird question?
Think about how powerful and simple water is and how we can’t live without it.
I love water in my Starbucks refillable cup, that I drink from all day long. I love that my kids want to share it, even though that’s kinda gross. I remember my mama always drinking water and how that was her favorite drink. It’s one of my top three too.
The ocean is my favorite body of water. I feel a longing to be near it and in it or on it. It provides comfort and peace, and joy and play. It makes me feel so small next to it. When I was young, I used to love tumbling in the waves.
How about a warm shower and the cleansing and relaxing feelings that wash over you? Aaaaahhhh…isn’t that the best?
I love the sound of rain, especially when I’m inside. It’s raining today and California is in such a drought that I’m thankful for its presence.
What else? Swimming in a pool. I love the feeling of being under the water and feeling weightless, held by the water and off my feet. I love how quiet it is and how there are no distractions.
I also like fountains and falls and the sound of trickling or gushing water. There’s something peaceful and majestic and simple about the sound of water. It’s also so powerful and can consume us and can be dangerous. I like that element too, that we have to respect its powers. Yin and yang.
And a still lake. Don’t you love those too? I love the reflections of the sky on the mirrored surface of the still waters. I also love how when the water is still, you can see how a small disruption has a ripple effect.
These are a few of my favorites. Have you ever thought about water this way? What are your favorite water forms?
