Day Sixteen: Water #npcadvent2015

Today’s Prompt: Write about water. 




It’s not that I don’t have anything to say about water… it’s that I have too much. The waters of baptism. Swimming as a kid until my toes were wrinkled. Working for water justice in Honduras and Colombia. My coffee is water, so is my tea and wine and salad. *I’m* water. How to write about water in any meaningful way? I promised myself that this writing challenge wouldn’t stress me out. If I didn’t have anything to say (or if I had too much to say) I’d let it be. These past 20 minutes have been a great daydream about water, even though I don’t have much writing to show for it.


This post is a part of the 25 days of advent writing and photos that I’m doing with my church Northwood Presbyterian Church, San Antonio. For the writing portion, I’ve just set a timer for 20-30 minutes and whatever I have at the end of the time, I post. No editing past the time limit… no worries if there are errors or if I stare at the screen for the first 15 minutes. Giving it a try.
