And like life, it can sometimes look like the gentlest beat, as the chaos reigns under the surface.
Hmm! I wonder why that itches my head at its similarity to this thing we do called life.
That moment where we look round for a grown up and see nothing but frightened old kids looking back. Still, I think I got away with it again as no one seemed to be paying attention to anything other than their own panic 😊

Small, sure, but the thoughts it provokes are big. Life takes all these turns against all logic, all sense, and yet makes sense later somehow.

Thought provoking little poem Jacob...

A river has a logic all of its own... which could be said for most things, how ever illogical that might be.

The river must be a metaphor for life, which at times does swirl without logic. Both philosophers and poets write about this phenomenon, but neither can fully grasp it.
