Spring of Life
2021, Senior, Art
I have great memories of being at the ocean–the warmth of the sun hitting your face after a cold morning, the feeling of the sand in our toes and feet, the deafening sound of waves crashing against the shore, and the distinct smell of the ocean being carried by the wind. I don't often go to the beach as much as I did growing up, but when I close my eyes I can easily imagine being back there once again. I also fondly reminisce of fun times spent walking through gravel banks down the Paluxy river where millions of years ago Dinosaurs walked the Earth. Evident by the giant footprints they left behind for us to see, they too were drawn to water. Water is what we need to survive, it is in essence a key component to life. We must protect this precious resource the best that we can, starting with the littlest of actions. One person’s small action of doing something good for our water ways can be the start of a ripple effect that can inspire others to do the same.
