Rolling along…

Normally, along this stretch of river the submerged shelf here is elevated enough that there are rapids here that cascade over the shelf falling about a foot or so. The water is up now at Winter flows. The pool remains, if deeper, and the Steelhead will still hold here before pushing up into the tail of the drift above.

Solitude on the bank…

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.”
Aristotle

Solitude, no traffic noise…no people, a few flitting birds…only the sliding, bubbling sound of the river…sitting entranced by the currents moving to the contours and boulders below…leaves drifting on the surface..lost in thought, a chance to stand up with a positive view.

Nature: Perpetual Ocean’s Surface Currents

This is an interesting video that has reportedly hit the viral circuit called Perpetual Ocean. The forces of nature never cease to amaze and impress. The images were collected by NASA, over a  two year period, of ocean flow data, which was compiled into the animation. Interesting.

Every Day in May Challenge: ‘Current’

Every Day in May Challenge: Today’s topic ‘Current’

Current? Current Events? Current in a river? Well it dove tails in a way. Currently, I am coming out of a dutiful stint for the last five years of tending to my mom and aunt (both massive hoarders; cancer, dementia, hospice, death, hoarding cleanup, which will continue on into next year; surgeries). All this has taken a toll on my outdoor pursuits with the necessary sacrifices we all have to eventually make for those we love and care for.

Fly fishing has been a passion for decades and this is the longest phase of such infrequent outings. Outings that are often disjointed and jumbled. One does become quite proficient in all the skill sets if one gets to engage in the pursuit often. It is kind of like riding a bike. It comes back after awhile. But at times I feel like a bumbler while fishing, fumbling for gear, stumbling while wading. Fitness plays a role in this. Surgeries and the attendant decline in strength contributes to the klutzy movements. Distractions that can intrude upon the zone, ‘the moment’. But, I believe in a better tomorrow. 

Markers in the Wild

 The currents of the rivers and streams are forces that we read. Seams and competing forces that effect our presentations and success. Part of the puzzle that we attempt to solve: where is the lie? what insects live in that type of water? Imagery, imagination, karma. Currents and the structures beneath are like life. They must be read and understood if we are to be successful.

Current Events + Currents of the River. A blend that is life.
