Riding The Rapids To Heaven Or Hell

When the Ancient Greeks advised “you can never step into the same river twice,” they were dramatizing the reality of unending change…when the torrents carry you toward observable conclusions, the smart boatman doesn’t close his eyes…. he struggles to adapt to them now before they destroy him later….among our “observable conclusions” are the inexorable growth in the number of: women, minorities, immigrants, gays, transgenders, atheists….if you’re navigating the boat, you can always look back and insist you liked it before [when you imagine it-was-great]….but you’ve left that shore and this river doesn’t run in reverse
