QotD: Tim Palmer on Rivers

Rivers are magnets for the imagination, for conscious pondering
and subconscious dreams, thrills and fears. People stare into the moving water,
captivated, as they are when gazing into a fire. What is it that draws and holds us?
The rivers’ reflections of our lives and experiences are endless. The water calls up
our own ambitions of flowing with ease, of navigating the unknown. Streams
represent constant rebirth. The waters flow in, forever new, yet forever the same;
they complete a journey from beginning to end, and then they embark on the
journey again.
--Tim Palmer
