Downstream With The Geese

I was walking along the river the other day and saw a bunch of geese floating downstream moving in the direction I was walking. No pictures cuz it's too cold to take my camera out with me.

I remembered an excerpt from Shakti Gawain's book about life being like a river.

Let us imagine that life is a river. Most people are clinging to the bank, afraid to let go and risk being carried along by the current of the river. At a certain point, each of us must be willing to simply let go, and trust the river to carry us along safely. At this point, we learn to "go with the flow" —and it feels wonderful.
Once we have become accustomed to being in the flow of the river, we can begin to look ahead and guide our course onward, deciding where the course looks best, steering the way around boulders and snags, and choosing which of the many channels and branches of the river we prefer to follow, all the while still "going with the flow." (Creative Visualization, by Shakti Gawain, pg 38 c.2002 softcover edition)

NOTE: The image above is a photo I took of some pretty fall leaves. I applied to it the Almathera Puddle Filter Lake Preset within Paint Shop Pro 9.

NOTE: HypeMachine changed their website in Oct 07 and I quit using that site for discovering music because I don't like how it is set up now.

TV-now in Sep and now HypeMachine in Oct. Two biggies that went down hill with a website makeover. Bummer.
