water

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.

~Loran Eisely, The Immense Journey, 1957

I have thinking a lot lately about water.  A current project, a new house replacing one destroyed by fire, will probably incorporate some kind of pool or fountain at its heart.  The last image above is of the dancing reflections of light bouncing off canal water on the underside of a bridge in Venice.  This is an image I saw first twenty years ago and have held for all those years.
