Spirits of water
Wednesday, September 15, 2021
"Naiad, (from Greek naiein, 'to flow'), in Greek mythology, one of the nymphs of flowing water -- springs, rivers, fountains, lakes. The Naiads, appropriately in their relation to freshwater, were represented as beautiful, lighthearted, and beneficent."
- The Encyclopedia Brittanica
Our little Naiad cannot pass a pool of water without plunging in.
