This special day comes of age this year; it's the 21st time the UN and others have called out a day to call our attention to this vital commodity and natural gift. This year's theme explores water and energy. "Saving energy is saving water. Saving water is saving energy," their site says. For our future, it is crucial that we find an efficient intersection for these two forces. We will need every watt and every drop of both.
Celebrations have begun in Tokyo as we assemble to board our first flight. When we land after our last one, our own intersection with water will take on new life.
