This makes me think of the concept of going back to the water, how water is so elemental. Water must be my element (is there such a thing as a sacred element for each person?) if I’m feeling so happy to go back into it. I have always loved being BY the water—next to a lake, a river, the sea. Walking, eating, sleeping close to water, especially running or moving water is especially peaceful and yet also stimulating. I love the rain, especially after a dry spell, and remember the drought we went through in southern Africa and then the wild, wonderful thunderstorms which broke it.
