Time warp through water

What is it about the sound of water that draws you in,

Then just as suddenly sends your mind floating away?

Streams draw you in
and send you places

Lost in the moment ...

I unexpectedly found this water ruin of a rapid on a bike ride in Belgium, but just as quickly listening to it my mind slipped back in time and space to Pennsylvania on the lower end of the Lehigh River, first in the late 1800s of the pre-industrial age and then in a blink a hundred years ahead to me-still-in-school, until eventually I snapped out of it and -- poof! -- twenty years forward, back to the present, back on my bike, peddling ahead through a Belgian countryside that over the years I now know fairly well.


I knew my way home, only I was unsure if I'd make it on time. It was a shame I couldn't take the stream instead:

I'd be there in an instant if I could.
