River & Drawings


As I sat at lunch,

I felt something pulling me to the river.

I ate fast, went out the back, and sat.

Thoughts swirled into my mind

at the speed of the rapids.

I closed my eyes, bowed my head, and prayed.

Which was a rare occurrence for me on any day.

As I began to ask for guidance to see if I’m on the right path,

a swift wind hit my back as if it was the touch of a hand.

Tears streamed down my face,

and I knew that I am.


Below are some drawings I have done from the first half of the trip.
