# 277 we are water

I just finished reading Wally Lamb's latest book, we are water, an appropriate title as I progress through the summer of swimming.  A memorable quote grabbed me at the end when the main character philosophizes about the phrase, "We are water".

"All of life came from the ocean, right?  Even us. We flip-flopped out of the water, grew feet and bigger brains, stood up and started walking.  Makes sense, doesn't it?  For the first nine months of our lives, we float underwater.  Then we hit the cold air, the glaring light of the day, and start crying salty tears. Begin the lifelong challenging of trying to figure out why we're here, what it all means."

 I love Wally Lamb books so read this one as he expands on the unique character developments and writes his typical dysfunctional family storyline.

Thanks for reading # 277 of 7777.
