The river is wide, green, slow, moving towards the ocean.
Along the banks on either side there are events – squabbles, misunderstandings, declarations of love and hate, fully-fledged wars, and all manner of distractions.
But the only thing that can stop the rich deep body of water from flowing is a dam installed by an arrogant mind.
The wide, deep river flows on steadily, bringing life to its environment. The river is eternal.
