Our relationship to water is deep, especially in the Pacific Northwest being blanketed by it from the sky above us and surrounded by the Sound, rivers, and lakes.  It dictates how we travel or where it is most desirable to live.  Water is essential to our bodies and our survival.  We fish and harvest it.   Water is a powerful force of nature.  We gravitate to water for pleasure and serenity.  It cleanses and is used in ritual purification practices, but then we desecrate it by polluting our environment or our bodies with fluoride that is added to the drinking supply.

Seeking work relating to water with broad references to water:  life in, among, around water; water based techniques, water patterns and symbols, statements on water in our environment.
