Wet: has it's root in the Old English word waeter.
Water, it has always fascinated me. In time it will wear down these volcanic rocks.
I get solids. They're hard, I bump into them and can get a bruise. I can sit on solids, stand on them, use them for different things. Some solids are softer than others.
I get gas (yes sometimes but I'm not talking abut that kind today) I breathe it. My body is surrounded by the invisible stuff and I can move through it with ease. Some gases smell, some are visible, some are deadly.
I get dry, hot, cold, hard, soft....
But what is wet? What is liquid? Though there are many kinds of liquid I think the majority (particularly ones we use and consume) have their base in water. It's a total mystery to me how two gases combine to make...liquid that is wet.
I love wet, I love water, but I just don't get it. It's not solid, it's not a gas, yet it can be both those things. AND it's a liquid.
Water, the nectar of the gods, a total mystery. Kind of like the mystery of creating. How does that happen? Where does it come from? Has it always been here?
Most all water is the same water that was drunk by the dinosaurs, drunk by Jesus, Buddha, Mohammad. Very little new water is made. It has been recycled for billions of years by this wonderful recycling machine called Planet Earth.
Go, drink a glass of precious water and as it slides down your throat contemplate the mystery of wet, the mystery of creation. Contemplate all the whos and whats that have used those same molecules. Contemplate how those molecules will be used in the future.
We must take care of that which gives us life. As it is polluted and wasted, so will go our lives and so will go creativity.
