The waters the thing itself I wanted her every day and realized every day was not enough. — Vivian’s List by Haleigh Lovell, Jan 2014. It’s exactly how I feel about water — any bodies of water — lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, oceans. Their beauty is like the Sirens of Homer; they call to me, but I cannot get close enough to taste, touch and feel — just beyond my reach until . . . Seeing not with my eyes but falling to the center of the Earth — the center of my heart — where there’s a beauty and stillness always there. Needless to say, it may take practice to engage the heart so -- fully and directly -- if this is something new -- as it is with me.
