Water

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water."
Loran Eisley (Anthropologist), The Immense Journey, 1957

Gillen added lots of rocks from the beaver pond at the farm to the pond here at home. I now have a big beautiful flat white rock on which to sit while I wait for hummingbirds, dragonflies and whomever else may turn up. I love the sounds of water - the gentle babbling of the fountain that Gillen created with a solar pump, so that the sound only comes when there is sun hitting the panel - not too often and therefore more appreciated. And Rain! The first good long storm in a looong while, last Friday, had me out on our side porch smelling and listening for almost an hour.

This looks like a great watering hole for the fairies.

My favorite Bruce Lee tidbit: He gave his wife a medallion with "Be the Water" engraved on it. Powerful stuff, that H2O :)
