“Water fascinates me, pehaps because I’ve spent most of my life in the Southwest desert region of the United States. The sound of rain is welcome music on a dry and thirsty landscape. Creeks and rivers refresh desert dwellers, and lakes—so much water—seem a surprise. Lighting and downpours startle. Snow softens mountains, hills, cactuses, rocks.
—Pat, from the Author’s Note in Water Rolls, Water Rises/El agua rueda, el agua sube.
The last week in August is World Water Week, the annual focal point for the globe’s water issues. It is organized by SIWI, the Stockholm International Water Institute. The theme for 2019 is “Water for society–Including all.” Each of us can conserve water day by day.
