“What I love most about rivers is:
You can’t step in the same river twice
The water’s always changing, always flowing”
Pocahontas got it right as she sang in her canoe.
I wish I had a canoe. And a nearby river. That way, I could chill with my pet raccoon and hummingbird as I sort out my mind. So many decisions, opportunities, possibilities. As I’ve graduated and partly moved home, I’ve thought a lot about rivers. Because life is like a river. As much as you want things to stay the same, they don’t. Life is always changing. People are always coming in and going out of your life. The scenery changes so quickly. And circumstances rarely remain the same forever.
Sometimes it’s hard to think about what’s around the riverbend because I’m looking behind my canoe at the water I just crossed over. There’s lots of water I’ve recently crossed over.
Steady as the beating drum?
Should I marry Kocoum?
Is all my dreaming at an end?
Or do you still wait for me, Dream Giver
Just around the riverbend?”
