Recently I decided that whenever I meet someone, I should introduce myself as “Water.” Think of it: our brains are about 90 percent water, our bodies about 68 percent. Not even Waterman, simply Water: it makes people curious, they say, “pardon?” and I say again “Water.”
This immediately starts a conversation and creates an awareness about it. This new name conveys my deep concern about water.[1]
