“The pebble drops in the source water of the shallow

stream. Its course is deflected. It goes down this valley

instead of that; it meets streams from these mountains

instead of those; in a now unavoidable compulsion the

creek must eat its way through sand and thorny areas

and never know the rich verdure a few miles away.

A certain sort of river, composed of certain elements,

arriving by a certain route, flows at last into the eternity of the sea.

It is all one to the sea, but who can say that it is a matter of indifference to the river?”

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Profound words, when I read them the thought came

to mind that perhaps they help in explaining me to myself. Do they speak to you out there?, I would not

be surprised.
