some false and most pernicious notions about consistency -

where it should be his humiliation.

or what harm is caused by its water.
The River is the River, and that is all there is to it.

I choose to flow with the River of Life.

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

one's sense of inherent worth.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
