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.
