River thinking

There has always been something soothing about hearing the river's water lapping against its shoreline. And I kind of needed it today.

So I spent a good portion of my afternoon among blue herons keeping watch for their dinner, old fishermen casting their lines into the muddy water and little kids whizzing by on their bicycles without a care in the world.

And I soaked up the beauty of life. It's exactly what I needed. Because life is good - even when it seems a bit unnerving.
