“If there is magic on this planet is it surely contained in water.” So said late science writer Loren Eisley, and he was so right. Water freezes solid, but can also be a vapor, mist, rain, snow; water that is transparent and liquid, yet highly reflective. If you think about it, you’ll agree that water is really magical.
