Use With Eau Claire: Beyond The DNA of Water is a book project on the beauty, mystery and essence of water. The result is slated for a 2021 release.
There's mystery, science and art to the concept of water, especially when humans are drawn into the picture. 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 can be considered to be a rather complex one. Perhaps one that can be described as a love-hate affair.
One tends to think that "eau claire" and transparency are closely related, however, nothing may 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.
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.
Just like the flow continues its travel through the hydrologic cycle, we will continue our travel over water, patiently observed by... not only the sun.
Some statistics about water.
