Said the river: imagine everything 
you can imagine, then keep on going.

  1. my brain does the negative side of this quote, I imagine every single thing that could possibley happen and then struggle to go on because I scared myself silly.

  4. Good quote. And I love the picture! It is kind of surrealistic. At first I thought it was a flying fish!

  10. I wonder what all the things are that a river would imagine along its way. Whatever these might be, rivers are the life blood of the earth so they do need to keep going no matter what!

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
