Traveling – to My River

Traveling – to My River

Before moving to Missouri, I spent a lot of time on the Niagara River – diving, boating, kayaking, and just sitting on the shore – particularly along this one stretch of the river, which happens to be a good place to find driftwood. One of those, in the third photo, is going back to Missouri with me.

  1. Connection to place. It sounds to me that you are deeply connected to this stretch of the Niagra river — which causes me to reflect on my own connections to place, some of which are so deep as to be painful. I brush lightly against these connections fearful that my longing will rise to the surface and overwhelm me. Long hours spent by a river, years spent absorbing the “place” of a place establish deep connections within one’s mind, body and soul. That’s all.

    • I know what you mean. I lived so close to the river, and did so much on and around it, but I think I took it for granted. During my last few years in the area, before moving away, it came to be a place of reflection.
