We challenge you to expand your definition of River. Dive deep – discover literal, symbolic, artistic, geographical, spiritual, cultural and historical significance of River. Meet us at the river! Jump in the boat! Start the engine; or help us paddle. Come - swim alongside the canoes. Cast the line - feed the hungry. Submerged - are you washed free of sin; or traveling the path to enlightenment? Do you shiver thinking of Hamlet’s Ophelia; her “mermaid-like” clothes pulling her down to cold “muddy death”? Will you exchange ideas and trade product with others? Are you floating and enjoying the gentle rocking of the warm waves; allowing your mind to wonder? River is wild and free; it may nurture or drown. Share with the community your idea of River.
