From “A River Runs Through It“ by Norman Maclean:
“Eventually, all things merge into one and a river flows through it.
”I am haunted by waters”
Like Maclean, the older I get I am haunted by memories which, like the waters, run deep. The waters have always been a part of my life and are inextricately linked in my mind, both good and bad. Eventually, they all merge into our being.
A favorite of mine no doubt... I just like to add the rest of it
Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it.
