Water is a community resource
We swim in the shallows and cast lines out deep, we glide across the surface in kayaks and motor from one point to another. In Marquette many of our public parks have a shoreline.
That same stuff we recreate in flows through our taps and nourishes us and our homes. We’re lucky enough to take fresh water for granted. It cycles back out into our land, drained into the filter before released to be recreated in once more.
Water is essential to life.
60% of our body is water, it courses through our veins and fills our cells with a seemingly magic potion that smooths out the complicated workings of the human essence. It seeps out our pores as we stress our physical self. Without it our tongue feels unfamiliar in our own mouths, parched. All life requires water, what wonders the flora and fauna have invented to live in, around, and without a constant flow.
