I doddled at the river today. I thought that cleaning the house was something I could do in the winter. It was so absolutely important to take in the beauty of the river; the air was intoxicating. Everything took pause.
And then, there was an explosion of energy as I threw the stick into the water and shouted, “Get it, Max!”
I had that sense that I was in the presence of a secret intruder…a coyote? a monster? that strange ‘thing’ that visits you when you are on your own in nature!
Once to the river, we find the fishermen and the boats floating smoothly with the current.
Miles of river, winding.
