What a wonderful exploration of the value of water and a revelation of your fertile, imaginative life as a child and an adult, realizing even at an early age how sacred and essential water is. Yes, I too fear that water wars will overtake and surpass the oil wars when it comes to survival of our species. But as you point out, there are small but significant actions we can take to use water wisely. Thank you for this wise, realistic, but still hopeful exploration of the state of precious water in our fragile world.
