Every time we go to the creek I think of the Natalie Merchant singing Where I go, particularly this verse:
Well I go to the river to soothe my mind, to ponder over the crazy days of my life.
Watch the river flow, ease my mind and soul.....
I know everybody has crazy days. Since mainbain and I began taking the First Responder training last week it's been a bit more than crazy around here. We got out of class early yesterday and took the baintrain to the creek.
For an hour and a half there was nothing to worry about. No cell phone signal, nothing more important to do than swim and skip rocks and laugh and shiver a bit.
Wish we could go everyday - just for perspective!
