    Following The River

    I have traveled many states, lived in many places. I seem to settle by a river. Most of my life i have followed the Ohio river through 3 states, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. When i stayed in Oregon, i was totally in awe with the Rogue river. It seems i am happiest when i am...

    The Ohio River

    I grew up, and now again live a long baseball throw from one of the major rivers of North America. As a kid, I used to love to go about eight miles upriver to watch the tows lock through the huge Mehldahl locks and dam there.

    Handing Over The Reins

    They say that a river never stops moving, That currents command the water's mission. So, who am I to be so disapproving? Did I expect it to cease at my transition? I liked the arrangement of the rocks at the edge, So I built us a home there at the base of a tree. And the words I...

    Some Existential Reflection About Loving Rivers

    I was just scrolling leisurely through the categories I belong to, wondering what I could write about next, when I came upon this one.  To me it's sort of a no-brainer.  I mean, who doesn't like to sit and relax beside a river, or any flowing body of water?  Doesn...

    I Miss Healthy Rivers

    Time was any flowing river in north america and europe was clean and drinkable. the fact it was flowing kept it clean and fresh and it could usually be drank from from the river. Not so these days. I can't believe what humans have done to the world's water supply

    I almost always visit the river

    after my morning jogs. There is something about free flowing water that tranquilizes the psyche of oneself. It almost feels like the real world, the part that is calm and serene (not the one thats stressful & fast-paced) is right in front of you. i look for a smooth rock to sit...

    Tanecomo, Missouri

    My wife and I were enjoying a week at a cabin on Tanecomo. I was sitting watching the water go by, there had been lots of rain the week before, all the flood gates were open and water was flowing by rapidly. I was strumming my guitar and the two of us wrote a river song. It...

    The Crisp Sound Of Moving Water

    speaks to my soul. Time moves forward and backward. Matter is energy.  Nouns are composed of verbs.   When I was a child we sunk our canoe in the rapids.   Synchronicity Speaking back is my greatest, foolish desire.  Mother God won't allow it, until the day She and I drown...

    The Fascination Of Flowing Water

    I could look at rivers and listen to them all day. Whenever my journey takes me across one, especially if is new or unfamiliar, I try to get a look at it. Wide ones, narrow ones, deep and slow, narrow and fast-flowing - they are all compelling to me although my favourites are the...

    To Be Healed By The Mississippi

    Now let us lay ourselves next to the raging water. May it not still our hearts. May it cause our souls to stir washing away the brokenness that is within us. Listen my child for the rivers flows ever changing as it passes our pain by. It is such bigger then it seems. Rushing past...

    Life Is Movement
