Water - Sacred and Profaned

“If there is magic on the planet, it is contained in the water.”
     ~ Loren Eisley

Many documentaries have focused on the various way the Earth’s water has become polluted and profaned. This program esplores the sacred nature of this precious gift which is everywhere, surrounding us, enveloping our lives and those of every other living thing. Without water there would be no plants, no food, no fish, no birds, no people, no life.

Six unique men and women share their experiences and insights about water, the most abundant and fundamental element of the Earth. Throughout the program are images of water in all its forms—clouds, snow, rain, ice, rivers,, lakes and oceans—culminating in a four-minute montage of beauty set to the inspiring music of David Foster.

I am unable to play this video as it does not appear on blip.tv lists. This is unfortunate as I am writing a paper for my College programme and am in a position to recommend that this be purchased four Library.
