Watching the water flow

I used to love to do this when I had enough vision to do it. To sit and watch the flow of water in my bathtub, in my kitchen sink, in the sea, and anywhere I could find flowing water.

The water sparkled and moved! It flowed noisily and it flowed quietly. It flowed lazily and it flowed gently.

I could still remember going out to watch the water flow in a drain on a rainy spring day. There I would stand quietly looking down at the water hustling down the drain. Sometimes the water was clean and at other times it was murky. Or I would stand on a semi-deserted beach watching the water flow in circles in the sea. The water sparkled as the face of the sun beamed down on it.

These were some of my favorite pastimes when I had enough vision to see, but now without the benefit of sight I can use my memories to remember and pretend that I am watching.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day.Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
