Thought of the Day - Water

Thought of the Day

Cities invariably develop by rivers. Or, at the very minimum, plentiful underground water sources. For all our sophistication, our most pressing needs are the same whether we live in mud huts or condominiums. Water. Got to drink it. Got to wash with it. Strange that we develop such a wry, dry view of the world when so much depends on our ability to get wet. What's a real crisis? Nothing with which to quench a burning thirst. What's the very worst we face? Some small spill not some great loss.
