Water. We don’t give it much thought unless deprived of it. Our planet is easily two thirds water. The water that falls from the sky in the form of rain or snow eventually finds its way to rivers, streams, lakes and oceans. Always in motion, always connected. The water we use today will likely find its way back into this planet's massive aquifer. Water is constantly recycling, disappearing into the depths of the earth only to return thousands of years later in the form of a spring or seep.
