River Wisdom Wednesday | David Brower

Spirit Falls, Little White Salmon River, WA
In this quote, David Brower speaks perfectly to something we so often confront--both on the river and in our everyday lives. It is, it seems, a Call to Adventure, an exhortation to step outside of what is comfortable. He entreats, or reminds, us to be bold in how we live our lives--to abandon our fear of those things we cannot control, to accept risk as an inherent feature of life, to eschew our imagined limitations and hence realize our full measure.
