Advice From A River

I never get tired of walking down to our stretch of the Crystal River. Each time and in each season you will find beauty and something new to discover. I welcome my daily walk to the river, which always is both calming and exhilarating--go figure?! Nature always has things to teach us--and for me--especially "my" river.
I found a "poem" the other day, written by Ilan Shamir, entitled, "Advice from a River". I thought I would share it in this blog for your enjoyment and reflection!

Go with the flow. Be thoughtful of those downstream. Slow down and meander. Follow the path of least resistance for rapid success.

Immerse yourself in nature, trickling streams, roaring waterfalls, sparkles of light dancing on water. Delight in life's adventures around every bend. Let difficulties stream away.
Live simply and gratefully in your own true nature, moving, flowing, allowing, serene and on course.

It takes time to carve the beauty of the canyon-Rough waters become smooth

Go around obstacles

Stay current

The beauty is in the journey!

We are so thankful to be living and learning from the Crystal River! We hope you come share it with us soon at the Apple Tree Lane Bed & Breakfast,
