Constantine

"Water is a universal conduit, it lubricates the transition from one plane to another"

Lots of water imagery in this movie ... although the transitions are always between earth and hell. The image of baptism is used a number of times.

Mind you ... it may only be an excuse to put Rachel Weisz in a wet shirt for most of the second half of the film!!!

a bit lost ...

Kind of lost my thread about what I'm doing and why with the Water series ... so I've been going back to my original sources, notes and research. I'm not helping myself by setting up a further 6, bigger pictures as well as the 15 I'm working on! Anyway, I've done another 2 in the series ... (these are extracts, btw, because they won't fit on the scanner! Also, they're a bit dark ...and they don't show the texture and surface and stuck-on bits. Might give you an idea though).

Also, going back to my sources and inspiration, here's another cool little poem by e.e. cummings:

maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles, and

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles: and

may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find by the sea

Water for Life

Clean water is essential for life, but over a billion people in the world do not have it. This and the lack of sanitation result in over two million people dying from water-related diseases every year.

The lack of clean water close to people's homes also affects people's time, livelihoods and quality of life.
