we all follow the River
Some try to harness it, but eventually it does break away, in torrents, in cascades, and we are tossed upon the rocks. We all bleed sometime in our lives, and it's not just about us, it's about those we love, those we encounter. I say the Be Kind part of this speech is very important. Remember to be kind to yourself when life socks you in the jaw and knocks you over.
Change is evolution, and we are all evolving. There is love in evolve if you look at the words, running backwards. We cannot change time, by reversing what we did, but we can, all of us, surely acknowledge that time changes us, in profound and often awesome ways!
