    Water Baby

    I've always loved water. Ever since I can remember. When I was just a little kid I used to crawl through muddy puddles and splash water. I used to love watering the garden, playing with the dog with the hose. I've always loved the beach-the feeling I get when I'm close to the sea...

    It Calms Me Down.

    I am a restless soul and I find it hard to sit still and do nothing. However, watching moving water can really calm me down. I can just stare for hours rom a boat at the waves at the side as I can at a flowing river or a water feature. I love the sound of water and enjoy...

    The Water Lover In Me

    Water is very soothing and spiritual to me.  .. . everything from taking a hot bath to walking on the shoreline. Even as a Witch it's my favorite element to work with, although as a Witch all have to be represented equally for balance.

    Diving Is The Way To Go.

    I have loved water all my life. It doesn't matter if it is in the bathtub or shower or ocean. I taught myself how to swim when I was around 7 years old, and I spent as much time as I could at the local public swimming pools. In about 1982 I took my love for water to a new level...

    Energy Water

    There is something about a natural body of water that brings me both peace and energy. My body will crave water and rejoice when I'm near. The best yet is to emerge myself free of clothing and become one with the water. Even being next to it lifts my spirit. I lived right off...

    Fear Of Drowning

    When I was young, I never learnt to swim and had this mixture of being drawn to the water, yet being afraid of drowning because I couldn't swim. My mother tried to teach me when I was about 9 or 10, but the sea water was pretty cold and I was always a skinny boy, so got cold...

    Wadeing

    I love to wade in the creeks and streams I come across. I just can't help it. It feels good not only on the feet but to be alive and enjoy everything surrounding me. I enjoy being by the rivers and oceans as well as wading in them too. I even have a swim if it's safe to do so. It...

    I Really Do

    Whenever I am walking along a river bank or sitting near a lake, I am filled with such peace. Especially when with a trusted friend or lover or just alone. No people to ingratiate themselves into my "happy place". I love the  sounds and the smells when it is of nature and...

    A Peaceful World
