Water - we can't live without it. Sometimes, sad to say, Mother Nature dictates that we can't live with it.
But we do harness the power of water for our needs - we produce energy, we cook, wash and grow food with it.
Some folks earn their living from it. Others take their leisure in it and on it - sailing, surfing, swimming, scuba diving - the list goes on.
Phew! All that energy expended. It's exhausting even to think about it! So, it's refreshing to unwind after a day's activities.
And that's where water, like music, has a gentler and more relaxing aspect to it.
For example, imagine, if you will, the following scenario -
...... A warm, lazy summer's day.
The picnic's finished, the food was good and you've fed well.
Eyes closed, you're lying in soft grass by the side of a tinkling brook.
The peaceful sound of clear, running water melds with the drone of distant bees.
No cares, no worries, no anxiety, no tension - only that dreamy state of mind as your thoughts wander.
You're completely relaxed .....
It's a lovely, lovely thought - but summers end and life isn't always a picnic.
But what if you could recapture those soothing summer sounds in the comfort of your home? That would be sweet - yes?
Well, the good news is that you can - if you treat yourself to a table top water fountain. Then you can create your own peaceful little haven at home to soothe away the stresses of your life.
