When entering the Gorge, leave behind all preconceptions. Let yourself be carried off on a stream of consciousness that tickles the heavens as readily as it grinds down stone.

The Whitewaters Of Remembrance

Afloat upon indiscretion,

one second breathing, the other capsized,

he counts and recollects the miracles he

performed throughout his apprehensive life,

scrutinizing every moment and deliberating judgment,

wondering how it would have all turned out had he been

afraid to dip his toe in the current of recollection on that

fateful summer day when he finally realized he was alive.
