Oceans and seas
Beaches and islands that could just as easily be destroyed by the water from hurricanes tidal waves and tsunamis

Water is liquid at room temperature freezes at 32 degrees Celsius and in heat becomes water vapor
Water vapor collects in the sky to form clouds clouds become filled with water and water may fall to the earth in the form of snow sometimes sleet or hail but usually does so as rain and rainwater can fuck up your new hairdo rain on your parade or just collect in puddles and such until it evaporates and nature’s process starts all over again

Nobody knows (because)
Water is a mystery
Relatively incompressible and incomprehensible but nevertheless fundamental and absolutely essential to all life which is why in Latin water is referred to as the
FONS ET ORGO (the source and origin)
And the Hindu’s Bhagavad Gita states we have all emerged from the primordial sea and its true because once you was a little baby in your mother’s womb filled with water and then her water burst and lo and behold you were born covered in water and probably baptized in water

Renewal and rebirth
You heard the song

To quench our thirst
We wash wounds with it
Wash our hair our clothes and our asses with it while dead fish are washing up on the polluted shoreline we buy 16 ounces for a dollar twenty five

Shower with it and in 5 minutes use more of it than a poor Indian family will have for an entire day
