"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Scary Rapids

I took a river rafting trip down the treacherous Provo River with those fun teen girls that keep me on my toes. Honestly, the most treacherous thing about that river is the bevy of fly fisherpeople and their flicking fishhooks. Okay, to tell the truth, my kayak companion and I did get run over by a tree, but we escaped unscathed:

This picture was taken before we went down the river. We were much more soggy by the end of our journey.

This is at the end of our journey. We didn't even care how soggy we were.

The water was cool and the wildlife abundant. We passed some cows drinking peacefully at the waters' edge, a black weasel scampering along the bank, some fish that were leaping for joy because they were too happy to stay in the water, and a huge beaver just chilling in the middle of the river eating something delectable. If you haven't done so already (or even if you have!) you should totally take a little drift down a river (quick! before summer is totally over!). It will do your soul good.
