How Character is Like Water

The water we treasure today — for our health, spirit, life as we know it — is the same water that has always been. It is essential, elemental and timeless.

Water also changes states, driven on a large scale with energy from the sun, but always making its way back to a pure state, back to its foundation. Human beings love to interact and acknowledge the changes and states of water. We marvel at and play in snow. We enjoy the life-giving nature of rain. We love the metaphor of rivers. We swim, we drink, we bathe. We need it, and we enjoy it across the fullness of our lives.
