The Stream is beautiful, ever changing, and purposeful. The stream is about flow.
My friend Pam, who is my creative encourager, was not surprised when I claimed a metaphor for my writing project that was about water and flow. I love fly-fishing, thus I wade the stream. As a wader I am inspired by the stream’s beauty, respectful of its changing nature, and encouraged by its purposeful flow.
While ancient in its purpose, the stream is presently focused. I practice in the stream’s presence mindful only of the moments that flow by as I wade in its wisdom. From the depths of experience, the stream is a beloved storyteller. Wading in the stream’s presence I am restored in my own story.
The stream is a loving, inclusive force necessary to the life that surrounds it and the life that is drawn to it. As one who is drawn, I’m in awe of this force that has become such a part of my experience.
