There are those who will never admit it.

The River flows with no concept of good and bad - right and wrong.

or they may founder in a storm and drown, and the River just flows.

It is not unchanging, but it is timeless,
and it changes in its own time.
The River of Life knows no obstacles.
The River can cut through solid rock - in its own time.

and the fear-based advice
your neighbors are so willing to give you.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
