The Kanawha River laps gently at the pebbles on the banks. Small birds fly from twig to twig behind me. There’s a few patches of leftover snow in the shaded areas of the little roadside park but the sun is warm and the wind is calm for now. I’m fascinated by the patterns formed in the ripples of river. I can see how the waves are reflected off of the shore. As a child I read that Polynesian sailors could lay in the bottom of the boat and know where the islands are just by feeling the patterns in the waves. As I read the ripples in the Kanawha River at Glen Ferris I know that story is more than just folklore. I have often compared the rivers to the concept of the flow of time. Watching the ripples and how they interact with the objects in the river I have to think that there’s another parallel with life experience. If we are in “the river of time” then it must also be true that we’re making ripples in the flow. Ripples that travel out and intract with other objects and people. With that in mind, how much more important is it to make sure that the ripples we send out are the result of positive actions?
