Chris--thank you sooo much for such an energetic, engaging video rendition of my poem! It was fascinating to learn that some of the water molecules we drink and bath in really are billions of years old. Wow, right?

Beautiful look at this poem. I know a couple of little girls who will love seeing this; they love their baths too! Thanks!
