The Ride

Have you ever felt like you were enjoying a nice beautiful ride and then, all of a sudden, a humongous waterfall looms ahead? You are on the brink of going overboard, your canoe tips, your back is stretching backwards and your fingertips are clawing for the top of the falls. The canoe falls farther and farther down the waterfall. You try to reach up but are suffocated by the mist surrounding you. Have you ever felt like that?

I feel just like that right now. I've fallen off the edge and there is nothing I can do to stop the descent. I know that one day I will be free from the powerful waterfall's grasp, but right now I am right in the middle of all the upheaval. May the next four months end with me in my canoe floating peacefully down the river.


  1. If it's anything like the log flume at Lagoon, then I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. ;)

  2. Yes, yes, yes.

    You'll ride this one out. Can't wait till our next writer's group meeting :-)

  3. Yeah, just a few weeks ago. HANG in there things will get better. Cant wait to see you guys on the 27.

  4. I'm thinking more like Rattlesnake rapids, where you have less control and are guaranteed a drenching before it's all over.

    But the rest of the day is much more refreshing with wet clothes...

    You'll make it, Shari!

  5. Dude, it's like surfing - just relax a bit and find the fun. The inside of the curl is the most dangerous place to ride, but it is also one HECK of an experience if you just lay back and enjoy the ride!

  6. Nope but that is a very cool Pict of Niagara Falls in Canada. Where did you find this one?

  7. the dragon's heart --
    I just googled "niagara falls" images. Thanks for dropping by.
