The problem isn’t the river; the river flows, it changes, it does what rivers do. The problem is that we expect the river to be solid ground. We swim against the current and wonder why we’re exhausted. We demand that life be static and knowable. But that is not the nature of this life. In fact, nothing in nature is the same one day to the next. The only things that don’t grow, that don’t change, are already dead, and even they are busy becoming something new.
