river time

today I spent the day rafting on the river
and I was reminded of river time

river time means:
peanut butter & marshmallow sandwiches
M&Ms at the jumping rock (but not before)
a beer after the first rapid and another after the last
sunblock applied too late

bald eagles, osprey, fish, deer, turkey, turtles, snakes, bugs and more

it also means that cares are left behind
no thoughts of unlovability
no thoughts of inadequacy
no thoughts of what if
no thoughts of why
no thoughts of how come
no thoughts of the pain in my life and in others
no thoughts of yesterday

just happy thoughts
like love
good food

this is what river time is all about
I am grateful I got to experience it today

looking forward to tomorrow’s adventure
