The positive in this is awareness. I have bowls in the sinks, and buckets in the shower. I carry water from the bowls outside to water my plants, and we flush with the shower water. There is something quite lovely about gratitude for each drop, and though this is not like women carrying water from wells, I understand with deeper intensity the preciousness of this beautiful resource.
May these changing weather patterns allow us to come together as a planet to share what is so vital to our health.
