Today I got to watch the creek in action. She had widened her stance to brace for the scouring pressure of the flood waters. She needed man to let her alone to do this, to spill her banks when necessary, for that is how she slows and subdues the force. The downstream town benefited without knowing. But I knew. So I thanked her on the residents’ behalf.
