If you have been around me, you will know that I use the analogy of upstream-downstream to describe our flow in life, and to observe how through our interactions with others, they either work harder or flow at ease in their lives. So often we are encouraged to paddle upstream, work harder, achieve, over achieve, strive, with the ideology that there is never an end to the stream…always something for us to “work” towards… I think we are free to flow downstream, and when we flow downstream (or allow others to do so), communication is easier, achievements are natural, stress is much less…
Enough said. I hear the flow of this stream, smell the sweetness of the green, and feel the accompanying breeze through this valley in Vermont. Hope you have a moment to hear, smell, and feel all that this photo stimulates for you. Have a great day.
