When you… and you do express your gratitude, whether it is for a particular cloud or mountain or stream or blade of grass… it is a gift. …  it is a sublime union …  a form of sacred union where there is recognition …  for every molecule of water, every drop of rain that falls into that river or stream. … an appreciation of the stream bed, the grass that grows at the edge, and the forest that lies behind. It is an expression of union. It is an expression of love.  Gaia
