This week Bear chose “WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE, NOR ANY DROP TO DRINK” as our theme.  Literature is the grand repository of our dreams and desires and fears, of our longing for meaning and justice and redemption, of our yearning for intimacy and community and solitude, of our unquenchable pursuit of beauty. The great aim of literature is to render in words the nobility and majesty of life.

That images of water should play such a prominent and recurrent role as a metaphor in literature is hardly surprising, given the essential place of water in life itself. Water is, of course, mutable and sublime, sustaining and destructive, and throughout literature water serves as a representation not only of birth but of death, not merely of placidity but of violence. Water transports the hero to his great adventures and carries him home. Water holds the promise both of freedom and of enslavement, its shimmering surface inviting, its depths mysterious and daunting.

Water is also a powerful dream symbol that holds deep messages to the dreamer and should be examined. Water as a dream symbol represents your current emotional state of mind. Feeling thirsty anyone?
