Let his thoughts return November 17, 2010

This idea filled him with fears and worries. But soon he let his thoughts return to the river, and as he lay there a whippoorwill began to sing on the opposite shore, darkness spread over the land, and Stuart dropped off to sleep. (from Stuart Little by E.B. White)

I have found a lot of little things to worry about today for some reason. But now I’m going to bed to read A River Runs Through It and drop off to sleep where it’s no worrying allowed. You know, both Stuart Little and Winnie the Pooh have made the connection between rivers and letting go of worries and fears. There must be something to the idea because those are two of the wisest creatures in literature.

    This made me think of the REM song “Find the River”
