Not too long ago I floated on rivers for a living.
As a wilderness educator and whitewater river guide, I plied rafts through torrents of whitewater and along miles of placid riverscape. I drank from them, carefully decanting the layers of sediment collected over hundreds of miles. I slept on sandbars that stretched for hundreds of yards, as millions of gallons of water quietly shifted them down stream.
