Just Around the Riverbend

Maybe one day in the future I'll write a whole book called Disney Princesses: A Guidebook for Widows. There are some good analogies and inspirations there, kids. I posted over a week ago about wanting more, likening myself to Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

Well today I had the song "Just Around the Riverbend" in my head for no real reason... and I began to think of myself like Pocahontas, swishing and swooshing my way through a fast river and down waterfalls...

What I love most about rivers is:
You can't step in the same river twice
The water's always changing, always flowing
But people, I guess, can't live like that
We all must pay a price
To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
What's around the riverbend
Waiting just around the riverbend

I look once more
Just around the riverbend
Beyond the shore
Where the gulls fly free
Don't know what for
What I dream the day might send
Just around the riverbend
For me
Coming for me...

There are days when I have this overwhelming feeling that I am on the cusp of something...that something is about to happen...and it will all depend on which course I choose in this crazy river of life. There are moments when I sense that I'm on a crazy ride, and instead of worrying about the waterfall ahead, I just let go...and I enjoy it all. If there is stuff waiting just around the riverbend, I'm not going to let it happen without me. I'm going to sail on...

  1. How strange--this song popped into my head this morning too and I've been singing it all day! I think great things must be right around the corner for us both :) Thank you for your blog. Sending you lots of love and light!


Help me feel less alone.
