The four of us sat by the river that flowed beneath the deck.   It was a long restful moment filled with laughter.  We watched ducks take flight, the water flowing fast and furious, and we were at home with nature.

"What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn't have any doubt - it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn't want to go anywhere else."
