Be more water

On Consistency

It seems impossible that water could carve such smooth flutes and marbled channels through solid rock.
It would take me years of hard labour, powerful pneumatic tools, and then agonising hand polishing to mould rock like that.
Yet just water passing by every day has done that.
I think of that every time I see waterfalls.
It’s a reminder not to burn myself out smashing rocks.
All I need to do is just pour a little bit of water every day.
