Seasonal lessons in flow

Conscious of the shift in the seasons, with changes in activity and focus, I’m left with the question where to next?

In previous years we operated with a greater sense of predictability, of ‘knownness’. But not now.

This year has exposed the truth we are part of a much more complex and interconnected ecosystem. We just had the illusion of control and certainty.

Looking at the way that water shape-shifts over the stones at the ford, I am reminded that it does not lose its essential nature as it flows.

So what is the ‘us’ that is moving forward, responding to the changing environment around us? And what do we leave behind?
