About the Book

There is a dream I have dreamed so many times. It is a dream of rivers, all kinds of rivers, gentle, shallow, deep, turbulent, flooding, rocky, smooth, but always flowing. I have watched them from great heights, from very near, in fear and in quiet peace. But from these dreams I have learned that truly all rivers do run to the sea. There were the turbulent, the peaceful, the depths and shallow places of my life. And they were all building within me a central point towhich all my rivers flow and from which all life abounds.

The place from where the rivers come, there they go again. It is life on a cycle, the endless, limitless infinity, born and reborn, alive to the fullest!

First Sentence

Rivers, like people, carry responsibility according to their inner size. It is not always possible to tell by looking at a iver how deep it is. There are hints of shallow places, but there are also hidden depths. Said Henry Van Dyke, "The life of a river, like that of a human being, consists in the union of sould and body, the water and the banks. They belong together. They act and react upon each other."
