What is it about the sound of water that attracts us? The waves crashing to shore on rocks and beaches, the mountain stream rushing over everything swollen with the melting snow, the smaller crick trickling down through meadows and over logs, little fish resting in the shallow hollows, and rain on the roof bringing much-needed moisture to the parched land.
The sound is strength and peace and spirit all in one. It soothes, inspires, and makes us want to dip our toes in, or our heads on a hot day. On a couple of our hikes, we’ve come across log benches next to little cricks where a person could just sit and take it all in. Life just seems easier somehow when you can walk along a beach or next to a stream or stand out in the gentle rain and receive the blessing of water.
