Water fight

Posted on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 4:00 AM

I’d like to invite fellow reader Danielle Standley and anyone who agrees with her letter (see “Flower power” in Letters, Sept. 24, 2009) about “wasted” water to consider just three things:

1. Flowers promote honeybee travel patterns, therefore furthering necessary food pollination. Gotta have bees for fruits and veggies.

2. Studies show colorful and natural plants elevate serotonin in our brains. Flowers equal antidepressants.

3. Pessimism and negativity only further our species’ inability to become a collective consciousness.

If we all took on a thought pattern of “there’s more than enough” or “our waters are abundant,” then our creative source would fulfill our intended reality.

I diligently conserve water and electricity. I reduce, reuse, recycle, compost and do what I can in these trying times. I understand Standley’s frustration, but a switch to optimism must be our path to success.
