Use With Eau Claire

There's mystery, science and art to the concept of water, especially when humans are drawn into the picture. This is not just because the human body is roughly 60 percent water but more so because of how no chemical compound has influenced the development of human communities throughout the world as much as water. Yet the relationship between water and humankind is a rather complex one. Perhaps one that could be described as a love-hate affair.

Truth in Water...

One tends to think that "eau claire" and transparency are closely related. However, nothing can be further from the fluid truth. Water is discrete, always focused on painting distorted pictures of what finds shelter beneath its placid surface. A refraction that is eventually followed by a total block of light, leaving us only to guess what the deeper secrets within may be.

The Poetics of Water

Acquainted with the night, the tide rolls in

A sandcastle at seaside
where mermaids don't go
Lungs breathing water
as brain cells fire away
Strangled by the sandman
I sleepwalk no more

As tears roll out, the tide will turn.



To be continued...

And while the flow once again travels through the hydrologic cycle, reshaping the geological features of the Earth, our journey continues deeper into the DNA of Water. Patiently observed by... not only the sun.
