It's that time of year in this city Somewhere in Asia when we need the monsoon rains like the fish need water; all of Nature is longing in wait for the sky to open up its dark clouds after such a long, dry season of sun.
We all drink much more than we eat. We drink from gallon jugs all sorts of elixirs: warm water, cold water, watermelon juice, lime juice - with honey, and without- iced coffee, and iced tea. No matter how much we drink, it's never enough.
Send the rains, Mother Earth, Pachamama, the Buddha, Krishna, Allah, Yaweh, and Shiva.
We are all so thirsty.
