The river

“The river taught us how to listen with a silent heart, with a waiting open soul….”
-Herman Hesse

HELP WANTED:  Employment available for able-bodied ferryperson to navigate the rapids between today and tomorrow.  Must be strong in body and mind.  Ideal candidate will have an understanding that all rivers lead to the ocean and an appreciation for the effect of upriver events on downriver conditions.   Incumbent should be comfortable with few words and long periods of silence, and aware that any opinion, by definition, is one-sided.  Persons with a desire for power need not apply.

I am a husband and father, I am a scientist and teacher, I am a horseman. At night all the "I am's" go in a box and I shut the lid. I sleep like a dog.
