Down by the river


There is a lot of symbolism in the rivers and in life too
a great deal they have in common, perhaps more than we feel

We can sit passive on the sidelines and watch them rumble past us.
We can sit on the banks and hope for reward with our fly fishing.
We can go with the flow and hope we do not drown or get lost.
We can swim against the stream and enjoy the “the fight” or challenge.

There are lots of inspiring opportunities in rivers and in life too.


Here are 6 streams and rivers that have been inspiring to meet in 2013.





Nytårshilsner – det er præcist rette tidspunkt
Salutări de Anul Nou – aceasta este exact la momentul potrivit
New Year Greetings – it’s just the right time
Salutations du Nouvel An – c’est juste le moment opportun

Nyttårshilsener – det er akkurat rett tid
Saludos de año nuevo – es el momento justo
Auguri di Capodanno – questo è esattamente il momento giusto

(Unfortunately I can’t write more languages)

All the best wishes from my heart to You and Yours for the year of 2014

  1. All the rivers run…in their own ways, following their own paths and it’s a true gift being able to enjoy, admire and appreciate that. No matter what the place, mood or season it is. 🙂
    Here’s how we would say it over here: “Sveicieni Jaunajā gadā – īstais brīdis ir klāt!” 😀
