The River Road

stream.jpgI love running water whether it’s in the form of a single stride-wide stream or the arterty of a continent. Forgetting for a moment the pleasure for the eyes and ears a waterway presents, I’ve always been intrigued by the journey of water. When I’m hiking or driving and pass by a river or stream, I find it hard not to imagine where it begins and where it ends. If I followed this one or that, what regions would it pass through, what other waterways would it merge with? If I followed it upstream would I find an unknown spring? If I followed it downstream would it eventually lead me to the ocean? What do these waters see and taste along the way? I’d very much like to own a property alongside a stream some day. In my overly imaginative way, it would be something like having an everchanging series of visitors passing by own’s door.
