    You, I and everyone you know is living in paradise.

    Phil Collins had it right.....Another day in paradise.
    I lost water for 24 hours....omg...omg.....
    Couldn't flush the toilets, couldn't take a shower, no washing the dishes....Pretty regular appearance in a gulf coast area with timely hurricanes..
    But today,
    I was in heavy pursuit of our life giving liquid.
    Water is gold....No, Water is better than gold.
    Most really don't understand how good we have it.
    Our ancestors...Their ancestors, All ancestors struggled to work all day and feed their offspring....No video games, no AC and no electric water wells.
    We all are spoiled beyond belief with just the right temperature, a lazy boy, fuzzy carpet and what am I gonna make for dinner tonight with 10 thousand meals to choose from.
    So here is my question.
    WIth half the world struggling to have a drink of water and not starve to death....Do you feel guilty for living another day in paradise??
    I do.
    Going without water for 24 hours sent me to some mangled reflection bar.
