I am water.
I love water. I live water. My element is water.
My favourite bodies of water are sea and the cold, fresh water of the Ukhahlamba.
I love water and I hate sea sand. The largest water bodies are ocean. Largely,
one cannot exist without the other. On many a day, this thought helps me make sense of why I struggle at times to be in the world.
An existential crisis flowing from primal, innate and passionate core emotions.
*Amanzi means water in Zulu. My goddaughter, aged 2 years, shouts this so passionately when she would like a drink. My narcissism occasionally allows me to fool myself into believing that she is calling for my soul.
