The River

If you visited your favorite spot every day would you notice a difference from one day to the next? Would the clouds be big and fluffy Monday, and ominous on Tuesday? Would it rain on Wednesday, but shine on Friday? Would the air be absolutely still on Saturday and blow past your ears two weeks from tomorrow? Do you expect to see a bird singing or sailing high upon an updraft? Will that flower you saw yesterday still be in bloom? Will a plane leave a contrail high overhead? Will your special someone be joining you? And perhaps more profoundly, is it even possible to be the exact same person you were the last time you stopped by? The universe is in a constant state of flux. Do you see it? Can you feel the subtle changes or do you only notice if they roil and roll past? We like how the ancient philosopher Heraclitus spoke of change in this quote.
