Water, water everywhere

Last weekend, maeve_the_red asked me about the way that water crops up over and over again as a theme in my writing. It's something I noticed a while back and can't fully account for, except to say that I am, essentially, a watery bint. I love water, it plays a big part in my life, one way and another. I like to walk by it, stand under it, taste it (I have a surprisingly good water palate). It is the element my mind reaches for in metaphors, it is at the core of my self-descriptions.
It is, I admit, an obsession.
I spent this afternoon finishing off a short story. Just under 3000 words today, which is good going for me. And yes, it's all about water.

Skirt of the day: jeans. I was in a hurry this morning and they were first to hand.
