FF – I heart this Atwood quote

Keeping it simple today. I took this picture in March of this year, while driving around the backshore in Gloucester with hubby and the eldest. This quote from Margaret Atwood floated up in my newsfeed today, courtesy of Ravenous Butterflies. It seemed like a perfect match.

Atwood quote
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” ~ Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

  1. I’m such a bad geek — the Atwood quote (which is awesome) immediately made me think of the Dr Who episode with David Tennant, where the Ancient Martians are returning via water-borne virus, infecting the staff of the first human base on Mars with “just one drop”.

    Argh. I’m just gonna enjoy the photo now, because it’s lovely…

    1. LOL! Oh my goodness, I’d forgotten about that. Now who’s the bad geek? That was one spectacularly creepy episode.

      Hmmm, I was going to make another cup of coffee… suddenly not so thirsty…

      Oh, and thank you. Hubby and the eldest were extremely patient as I waited for the waves to break in *just* the right way. 😀
