Rivers

“All rivers run into the sea, and yet the sea is not full.” ~Eccles. 1:7

At one time rivers were the roads. Before the infrastructure of highways and byways, of rails and trails, the rivers were our transportation routes. In Herman Hesse’s novella Siddhartha, the river is also a symbol. As Siddhartha encountered the river in various stages of his life, its wisdom was revealed to him as it reflected his soul.
