The Spirits Who Live In Our Stream

Have you ever listened to the conversation of a stream?

Telling tales as it gathers and flows. Small groups chatter quietly

Larger gatherings more vocal can be heard from afarIMG_0121[1]

Is this the place for lost souls? The sound is not mournful

Over stones, falling into basins made through the passage of time

Narrowing and widening, the chatter undulating, celebrating, gregarious

So infectious

So many souls. What is it they’re trying to convey?
