YOU ARE HALF WATER

Water does not resist.  Water flows.  When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress.  Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you.  But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it.  Water is patient.  Dripping water wears away a stone.  Remember that, my child.  Remember you are half water.  If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it.  Water does.

    1. Margaret Atwood is an interesting lady. I’ve read a lot of great quotes of hers, but not read this one until recently. This one gets me thinking on many levels… at how limited we think we are, and not actually are. I’ve not read one of her books yet… shame on me… must do that at least by the end of this year. 🙂
