While I had this Idea, I also had the THOUGHT or Cool Phrase from a Film I’m not entirely sure if Many of you had seen it.
“The Day The Earth Stood Still.”
YES, I get it that it was a Cool Film as well.
Within the Film one of the Supporting Characters told Keanu Reeves’ Character,
“Only on the Precipices of Extremes do WE as Human change,”
Especially when WE do not have a Choice in the Change in what we’ve got to do.
It was a few weeks in the Making,
BUT on Thursday this past week, the Geyser in the Apartment decided that was it!
It started to Leak continuously,
So much so that the water Ran down to the Geyser below mine and
Apparently, from there the water ran to the Light Fixture of the Apartment in the Kitchen,
Leaking through there and dripping into the Kitchen itself.
Not only Us,
But I suspect the Tenants in the Apartment below also Logged a Complaint about the Issue that is currently hampering them,
Thus, the Powers that be, came to see what was to be done about this.
HERE is where the Issue really becomes a Pain in the ASS!
Understandable that It affected others,
I must say this – it’s a little bit Weird – seeing that the Coldwater,
If run Long enough become warm…
The water was turned off so not to Harm or Inconvenience the Tenants below,
YET for me,
I’m currently in the Apartment myself and I’m left without Running Water!
AND this is the Idea I wanted to share;
Hearing that in our Country there had been such Issues with water,
ONLY when You’re really, without it,
Do you Really understand just how Important it is for LIFE in general.
I’m not Suggesting that Others cannot Imagine how Difficult this would be,
BUT then that One saying also comes to Bear;
“Walk a Mile in my Shoes, Only then will You Know…”
In this case, that’s SO True,
E V E R Y time I want to Use water for whatever thing I want to,
I have to Stop and or Remind myself that for the time being,
I cannot just Open the Tap and Water would run from it.
In this Regard,
There’s SO much we can Loose in our Normal Day-to-Day lives,
There’s Absolutely NO way of knowing just what Might or even Could happen
For anything such as that to Take from You, which WE need.
I made sure to Stop at one of the Shops
They sell Filtered Water,
Making sure that I bought myself even MORE Bottled Water than which I normally do.
It’s within this that I know that Many People would also waste it,
Never having to Deal with the Issue Connected with the Lack of Flowing Water,
YET, when they Can do something to Save it,
They Might not care about that in the least bit!
It’s a Very Fast turn-around in Calculating what I have to do,
Planning WAY Ahead and making sure to Save and or Re-Use as much of the water I’ve gotten for Myself.
Yet, Even after the Municipality comes and Replaces the Geyser;
I’ll still NOT Waste a Thing in my life.
It’s Just that Interesting to Endure this kind of Life’s Experiment,
Having to Plan and Deal with the Lack of such a Precious Commodity,
AND even if I know just how Precious Water is,
In this situation, there’s Nothing that I can do in Helping to resolve this Faster and Easier for myself…
I’m not SURE just what else there are which Everyone else could have,
Which – not having it,
Would put You OUT really Badly,
YET – I know from Human Nature,
WE’LL do whatever we can, NOT having to deal with issues…
Until We’re ALSO standing on the Edge of Understanding.
If and when You Know there’s something to be done,
Pre-emptive Action is Much better than having to RUN around Blindly,
Unable to deal with Whichever issue that may be.
Anyone can Adapt to their Unpleasant Situation or Surroundings,
If you can Plan Way Ahead of this,
It’s NOT to say You’ll have to deal with that Issue to being with…
All the Best to You and Your Possible Issues,
HOPEFULLY, I’ll have a New Geyser before Long,
NOT Entirely sure about that one either…
