I am a river. I flow where I flow. I change. I am the same river. I have different moods, needs, and emotions. Today, I may be a wide, raging torrent. Tomorrow, I may be a shallow, bubbly stream. This afternoon, I may be a deep, calm brook. Next week, I may be a dangerous, but awesome waterfall. With me, I carry my history and future. On my banks is the debris of previous hurts. Floating in me, are the debris of my current pain. On my bottom crawls the dreck of painful traumas. Flowing is who I am. Life and death is a never-ending cycle in me and on my banks. I am a life, and a source of life. I am a place of death. I provide shelter, food, cleansing, refreshment, life… People come to me to eat, to drink, to bath, to rest, to play, to heal… They visit my banks for a moment of romance or meditation. I cannot flow upwards. I cannot fly (I am not an eagle). I can wear through a rock. I can flow around a mountain. I can fall down a cliff - at first, slowly trickling down, then becoming a mighty waterfall. I have endless possibilities. I provide endless possibilities. I am a river…
