Words Are Like Water

I’ve always loved water. There’s something about it that draws me in and won’t let go. 

I’m mesmerized by the pounding surf. 

I’m lulled to sleep by a rushing river. 

I enjoy the quiet weightlessness while gliding under a pool’s surface. 

I marvel at the beauty of a luminous full moon glittering on a tranquil lake. 

To me, water is vital, literally and figuratively. 

And for me, words are like water. 

They have the power to soothe, to cleanse, to nourish, to protect. 

They are essential for life, but can quickly destroy one as well. 

They relax and calm, support and uplift, improve moods and nurture souls. 

And if used regularly and with great care, they keep us coming back for more. 

Here's hoping you get your daily intake.
