Today I happened to meet a young man in the street whom I hadn’t seen for a number of years. I am calling him Graham, because it makes for a good title to this blog, but that is not his name. We exchanged greetings, talked for a short time and then parted. As I walked away, I found that his voice was so pronounced a groan that I laughed at myself for not having thought of him as Water before. What was interesting to me, and what taught me a little more about the Water element, was that the sound of this voice stayed with me for so long. I could still hear it echoing in my head many hours later. I almost felt that I was pursued by its groans.
it showed me about Water was that a groaning voice, unlike any other tone of
voice, has the ability to make itself felt in a very persistent way that I had
not noticed before. It seems to me to be
a clear reflection of Water’s ability to push through whatever obstacle is in
front of it.
I must listen now to some more Water voices to help me learn to recognize this
quality in their voices.
