While I’m not quite ready to talk about the details yet, here’s a peek at my current work in progress (that’s Work In Progress No. 2, for those of you who are counting — I’m going to finish this one up before going back to revise WIP No. 1). I’m working on this one steadily, driven by some New Year’s Resolutions and a little time to myself.
Let’s say this title going to go in the “self-help” category (with a little life-in-progress memoir thrown in for good measure), and it’s going to have some amazing photography to go with it. For now, here’s your taste…
One of my favorite Star Trek lines comes from an alien in the form of crystal which describes humans as “ugly bags of mostly water.” (“Home Soil,” Star Trek: The Next Generation).
Take issue with the pejorative “ugly bags” if you must, but the “mostly water” is right on. The human body is 60 percent water. Blood is 92 percent water, the brain and muscles are 75 percent water and even bones are about 22 percent water, according to The Water Information Program. We exist at all because three-quarters of the earth is covered in water. You can survive for a month or more without eating but without water, you’ll be dead in a week.
We are not so much what we eat, but what we drink.
Do you want to be fresh, crystal clear water or a fizzy, chemically cola? Drink accordingly.
