Pond Watch

Water is the driver of nature.
~Leonardo da Vinci~

"The upholder of the cycles which sustain all Life is water. In every drop of water dwells a deity whom indeed we all serve. There also dwells Life, the soul of the primal substance - water - whose boundaries and banks are the capillaries that guide it, and in which it circulates. Every pulse beat arising through the interaction of will and resistance is indicative of creative work and urges us to care for those vessels, those primary and most vital structures, in which throbs the product of a dualistic power - Life"
Viktor Schauberger

There is something about water that has a drawing force compelling me to stop, 
if only for a moment, to rest and meditate muse about things past and present,
or to contemplate the future.
It doesn't have to be a sparkling pristine stream,
a babbling brook, 
or a vast ocean of waves or tides to reel me in. 
It can be a pool of water trapped between rocks after a summer rain, 
or a scum covered pond dancing with insects for what lies hidden beneath its surface.  
There is something quieting and mysterious about a pond
...often stagnant, murky, and unimposing
... that makes one stop
and listen.
