Tokeawa Stream

I leaned over the railing of the bridge and looked down at the swift, rushing Tokeawa Stream. While I don't share Heraclitus' reputed contempt for humankind, nor his apparent fixation on dualism, I do think his famous aphorism about rivers (mouse-over the photo), despite being an oversimplification of what he actually said, expresses a universal truth.

Kia ora Pete,
As a Ruahine river walker of many years I have to agree with that. However subtle the river is never the same.

Ah, philosophy. Could also be argued that the river is eternal, as is the Now.
