A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Water" by G.


Today I'm gonna yap about....Water? Well golly gee whiz, why water, you ask? Well lets get right into it. Water is the lifeblood of the planet. It stretches across coast to coast in the form of a beautiful blue ocean. We swim in it. We Drink it. We bathe in It. Yeah, water is pretty important to us. But.. have we ever learned anything from water? Ridiculous as it sounds, Ill make it clearer than glass sprayed with Windex as we go on. Water is a liquid. Water can flow, like a calm stream. Water can rush, like some raging rapids. And as we all know, Water can devastate, as in a tsunami or a hurricane. What else does water do? It can take the shape of pretty much anything. It can douse the strongest fire. It makes plants flourish and grow. And for some reason, when It rains I fall asleep like a rock. So I've said many of the things that water can do. What I'm I suggesting here? Perhaps, you and me should take on some of the traits of water. We should always stay calm, like the quiet stream. But when it is necessary, we need to be strong like the hurricane. As water can take the shape of anything, we should also be able to adapt to anything. Like water that can knock out the most killer fire, we should be able to calm our own fiery anger and the anger of the people around us. And of course, like the water that feeds and helps make the plants grow, we too should also help ourselves and the people around us grow and flourish. So see? The water pouring from your tap can teach you a thing or two.

And as we're all important in our communities, like water, we should adapt to our situation to best suit the needs around us.

But that's just my opinion :P

That's very poetic. I suppose a lot of analogies can be made to compare people to water, when you think about it. I can imagine more, but I am not as poetic as you seem to be.

That's kind of you to say stefanie but I'm really not the poet type; just a strange thinker. :)

I like this post... it's inspiring. :-)
If I may share a haiku I wrote:

"Splashing and spraying,
Against the moss-covered rocks,
Water sustains us."

Great post! When you throw a pebble in water it ripples. When you do something kind for another person they in turn do something for someone else and on and on it goes, the ripple effect.
