But what did I see mirrored in the clear stream? A swan! Breaking free of my shell to travel down the river of life and embracing the artistic swan of my destiny. I stick out my long, graceful neck, only to get caught in a few whirlpools, this spin on life reminding me just how far I have come. I find myself following my true course with ease and grace as the wind supports my back, an ever growing fondness of my new found feathers. Practice compassion my friends, we all live downstream.
