WATERFALLS AND MOTORCYCLES
Waterfalls are spectacular, simultaneously beautiful,
uplifting, overwhelming and bringing such immediacy
into our minds.
I believe most people are in awe of waterfalls. No matter how big, or how small. There seems to be something about falling water that guides our minds to a path of solitude and serenity, no matter how noisy they are, we are amazed by their power, their ability to calm and quiet the mind. The same thing happens when I ride my motorcycle.
There is no wondering about
what the waterfalls were like
yesterday, no way to know what
they’ll look like tomorrow.
There will always be a shade of
difference, a nuance noticed
or not, but to see them right now,
in this moment in their
powerful splendor—that is the
way to celebrate the present.
