Rio! The River Runs Through It!



“Eventually. All things merge into one, and a river runs through it.”

— Norman McLean

A river runs through it

A few meters away from our new country home, a spirited river flows through the rapturous valley.

The current of the spring is swift and strong, bursting with the liveliness of the melting snow.

The water rushes through pure and crystal clear, like ice. I am drawn to it.

I must immerse myself in it, to sense the healing and cleansing effects of the water flowing around my body.

In these timeless moments, it feels as if I am the river, and the river is me.

With an awareness of the water running at me in the way that love rushes into the world and through us, I know now why I have been crying so much. The water from within bursts out in a river of tears, leaving me on the shore of wonder and innocence.
