Water!

'Understanding the fact that we are essentially water is the key to uncovering the mysteries of the universe. If you re-examine the world around you from this new perspective, you will start to see things as you have never seen them before... the various events that unfold throughout a person's life are events reflected in water. The individual and society make up one enormous ocean; by adding our individual drops to this ocean, we participate in the formation of society.' [Emoto]

Water

If I were called in
to construct a religion
I should make use of water.

Going to church
would entail a fording
to dry, different clothes;

My liturgy would employ
images of sousing,
a furious devout drench,

And I should raise in the east
a glass of water
where any-angled light
would congregate endlessly.

[Philip Larkin]

Dirty Dancing 2017 is a reworking, not a remake or reboot, and it's ok

Do you remember Michael Bolton's Timeless: The Classics album? And do you still cringe? There's a reason why classics are classics...
