    Default TWTTKH and water

    Interesting tidbit:
    My son is taking a college class about water and was given a reading list to select a book from. TWTTKH was an option so he selected it cause he knew I would want him to.

    Now he has to read the book and write about what water symbolizes in the book. That's his description, not mine. It has been a couple of years since I read the book, but I can't think of any water-related themes.

    Wasn't it raining/storming while Roland was telling the story?

    They also had to cross a river in the beginning of the story.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    There are multiple references to water like you mentioned, but I don't remember an overarching theme. Maybe I should reread the book also...
