So often we avoid running water, and running water is a lot of fun. You got your heavy coat out yet? It's getting colder. It's beautiful - and we haven't even done anything to it yet. If you overwork it you become a cloud killer. There's nothing worse than a cloud killer. See there, told you that would be easy.
The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe. If you didn't have baby clouds, you wouldn't have big clouds. I get carried away with this brush cleaning.
For the lack of a better word I call them hangy downs. Now we can begin working on lots of happy little things. Steve wants reflections, so let's give him reflections. This present moment is perfect simply due to the fact you're experiencing it. Only think about one thing at a time. Don't get greedy.
Maybe there was an old trapper that lived out here and maybe one day he went to check his beaver traps, and maybe he fell into the river and drowned. See. We take the corner of the brush and let it play back-and-forth. We might as well make some Almighty mountains today as well, what the heck.
Use what happens naturally, don't fight it. Be brave. There we are. These little son of a guns hide in your brush and you just have to push them out. The light is your friend. Preserve it. Don't hurry. Take your time and enjoy.
