ELEMENTAL WATER - CLAIRE GRACE WATSONCOPYRIGHT CLAIRE GRACE WATSON SITEMAP | NEXT

Water is necessary to cool my fire, though I'm a grounding earth sign. But I am talkative like an air sign. So I started out with all the elements working with me - fire within me, earth as my star sign element, air as the nature of my way of communicating, and water as my environment. Living between two swamps, the Altamaha and the Okefenokee, I was born a natural transcendentalist like the American poets Emerson, Thoreau, Whitman, Dickinson, and others. A transcendentalist is someone who is always finding God in the little things. It's because we spend so much time meditating water lilies and pond bugs that we find God in the swamp. We don't have time to find God in church, where most people do. We're too busy fishing, camping, swimming, hunting and hiking. Fortunately for busy people, God/dess is wherever you happen to be looking.

Nothing teaches transcendentalism like a swamp. There is more perspective to be gained there than anywhere else on earth, in terms of the Tiny. The mini- and micro-biospheres are everywhere. You can sit for hours, for weeks, for years on the bank of a swamp and ponder it. I know, I did it. You can look straight into the eyeballs of an alligator looking back at you, and come to know the Transcendent. Ever been chased by hornets, wasps, wild hogs, mad dogs and a panther? I have. Makes your heart beat soooooo fast, and you learn two things real important - how fast you can run and how hard you can pray.
