Mail me some water! (I am perfectly serious.)

I need as many people as I can find to send me some special water.

Let me back up a bit.

I'm a Unitarian Universalist. There's an annual tradition in UU churches called a water communion. You can read about it here:http://en.wikipedia....Water_Communion

The gist is that people bring water from their summer travels or from local places that are special to them, like favorite bodies of water or even their garden hose.

Today was my church's Water Communion, and I missed it, but I've decided I want to have my own Water Communion with people across the miles. So in the near future, I want people to send me some water (any amount is fine) with a note as detailed or brief as you like about where the water is from and why it's special to you. (Please no toilet, pet dish, or bong water, not that I really need to specify that.) I'll be mixing all our water, but I'm not sure what I'll be doing with it.

I am definitely going to be writing an article about this for a UU magazine, so please make sure you let me know your full name so I can quote you if I like. (Also let me know if you don't want to appear in the article.)

I have no idea how much water I'll get. If you want some of the mixed water, I'll do my best to get some to you. I will also send out copies of my article to all who contribute whether or not it's published. Email me at erinlyndalmartin at for my address, or comment with your email address and I'll write you with my address.

Thanks for reading this. I'll try to think of some way of thanking everyone who sends water. 


  1. I wish I could send you some famous Zam Zam water, but they don't have outgoing mail here. :~(

  2. No outgoing mail? What if you need to send somebody something?
