My tribute to River is this quote from Hermann Hesse's SIDDARTHA,
the book whom he's named after....
It is a very beautiful river.
I have often listened to it, gazed at it,
and I have always learned something from it.
One can learn a lot from a river.
"He imbraced the darkness and the light"
From River's favorite book;
TIME OF THE ASSASSINS by Henry Miller.
And from me....
Let River's light, brighten the darkness of our saddness.
