If there is magic

If there is magic on earth it is contained in water.
This quote is attributed to Loren Eiseley, an American anthropologist and natural science writer. (

Wind blows through the willow, creating ripples on the water. Reminiscent of growth rings in trees, she ebbs and flows with each season. The outgrowth brings decay, a lovely patina reminiscent of love shared and life well lived.
