This old river town saw the Early steamboats. The line of wharf and houses is a faded chromo. It is bleached and bitten standing To steady the sunrises.

028

I stand by the river and I know that it has been here yesterday and will be here tomorrow and that therefore, since I am part of its pattern today, I also belong to all its yesterdays and will be a part of all its tomorrows. This is a kind of earthly immortality, a kinship with rivers and hills and rocks, with all things and all creatures that have ever lived or ever will live or have their being on the earth. It is my assurance of an orderly continuity in the great design of the universe. 

(Virginia Eifert)
