An individual was born and raised in the middle of barren desert.
Their childhood and adolescence was adequate enough, but other than the odd rainstorm, every day was quite the same.
They absolutely adored reading, and they would throw themselves head first into the wildest and fantasmagorical stories and tales of fiction.
Those works would tell of immense tropical rainforests or the wildest blizzards to hit the most northern of tundras…
...and the kid wanted to experience it.
However, they soon realized that their fantasies were just that and they were not going to encounter a tropical rainforest anytime soon; however, they wished to experience just one thing if they could find a way to.
They wanted to see the ocean.
Seeing much of anything though; even relaxing in their spare time, was almost impossible because they were working so hard.
Given the climate of where they lived, the most prized profession was well digging and work was always available.
Early one morning, after only a few hours of sleep, they started drilling a well; but started to doze off in the middle of it.
When they awoke, they were startled to see a pool of water surrounding their excavator and a geyser shooting water some 20 feet in the air.
The “damage” was already done, but interestingly enough after a few birds came to take a drink in the ever growing pool which eventually became a lake and the animals came their to cool off…
...only in a matter of months did this spring become a little ocean oasis in the desert.
