Quote for the day

"Watersheds come in families; nested levels of intimacy. On the grandest scale the hydrologic web is like all humanity - Serbs, Russians, Koyukon Indians, Amish, the billion lives in the People's Republic of China - it's broadly troubled, but it's hard to know how to help. As you work upstream toward home, you're more closely related. The big river is like your nation, a little out of hand. The lake is your cousin. The creek is your sister. The pond is her child. And, for better or worse, in sickness and in health, you're married to your sink."  ~Michael Parfit, National Geographic
