I know I write a lot about the river. It is a big part of my life. I know it is hard for some to understand my passion for the river. For those that don’t have a chance to enjoy the river I hope you can get to experience it through my writing.
I love to be on the river at early dawn. Just as the fog starts to lift off the river. You can hear the fish hitting the top of the water partaking of their morning breakfast.
Songbirds fill the morning air with their beautiful music and the squawk of a Heron can be heard.
The river is my utopia and my kayak is my yacht. The world seems so perfect there. I have watched deer cross the river 10 yards in front of me. Watched beaver hard at work and have had Bald Eagles fly above me. One early morning I had an otter swim up and put his paws on the side of the kayak.
I can sit for hours and listen to the sound of the water working it’s way through the riffles. I can feel the tension start to melt as I begin to relax. There is so much that goes on at the river.
It’s a place one can go to take the time to know themselves better.
It’s a place to shed your troubles and worries.
It’s a drug you can’t overdose on.
It’s a place that can cause you to be overwhelmed with joy.
It’s a place where your soul, spirit, and mind can be healed.
In time it is a place of memories.
I am truly addicted to the peacefulness of the river. My love for the river has been around for a long time.
Thanks for reading. I appreciate it. Remember to spread the love and be kind to one another.
