The Long Lives of Rivers
Rivers live long lives. Rocks live long lives. Rivers live longer lives.
Rivers last because they are metaphors of forgiveness. When they encounter the hard edges of stone, they let go of their natural course and find another way down.
And yet, they carry away with them the rocks that block their current, one grain at a time. It is long work.
This is why rivers endure.
