Water, Water Everywhere
Maybe that title is a bit insensitive considering the flooding in England. Still it was a thought that crossed my mind last night driving through a torrential downpour in Rangiora, where the gutters were having trouble draining away the deluge. Many street corners were awash - though not needing boats to navigate them ...
I couldn't help thinking of the last few days of my extended summer holiday last year, spent by the sea...
Where tradition and modernity get on with their watery business;
Where reflections may or may not be of the watery kind;
And where boats ply watery streets as a matter of course.
Venice of course.
Wherever water is causing hardship and heartache, may there be relief and a safe haven not too far away.
