As I recently composed a picture of a fall stream at Wahkeena Falls in Oregon’s Columbia Gorge, I pictured my life as one of those leaves. I am often tossed and turned, sped up and slowed down, but I am always in this water of life that is God. I rest at times with other travelers, and other times I am alone except for God. And ultimately, I am no more, dissolved into this water, finally no longer separated from God.
