Like swift water, an active mind never stagnates...!

I have moved into new place and trying to set things out...I often miss Toronto, as every now and then something comes out and it takes me way back to Toronto...I know I bore people out here with my stories...but I love to live in those memories too :)

"Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose." ~From the television show The Wonder Years

But the view from my patio is something which brings back life into me :) & this is the view...its just amazing!!!!
I just love the water...the noise of the just thrills out the pleasure and joy in me.

"Everywhere water is a thing of beauty gleaming in the dewdrop, singing in the summer rain."- John Ballantine Gough

I had read this poetry long back ...but today to express my feelings ...and the joy that I have for having this view right out of my patio is something...which I can only mesmerize it...and read out..
"I came where the river
Ran over stones;
My ears knew
An early joy.
And all the waters
Of all the streams
Sang in my veins

That summer day."- Theodore Roethke, The Waking, 1948

The flowing water...when you look at just dont know where you are just takes you far from reality and takes you in such a wonderland also dont realize that you are actually standing still there while the water is flowing..:)..its as if the water is expressing its JOY.

"Joy is very infectious; therefore, be always full of joy" ~ Mother Teresa Posted by Picasa
