Water Is Good.
by Robert Wildwood
It’s good to do different things, keeps your mind working. I’m on a break from the river now, waiting for all the water dumped upstream from here to come down in it’s slow time. After this weekend perhaps. All the rest of the crews have gone up to Minneapolis to work and play. I’m loving being here, hanging out with people is awesome, exploring St. Louis more, sitting in Black Bear Bakery drinking coffee and writing down this story i’ve been working on all winter and spring and summer.
I fixed a garden hose today for the house next door, the Momo, i stepped on it the first night we were here and water went gushing everywhere. After two attempts, i got it working today, still a little drip coming out. Having problems with water lately.
It’s kinda sad having everyone gone. But good to, cause i’ve been on a boat with four other people and a dog for a month now, and i am a person who has learned to be happy when i am alone. Sometimes that means i dont know how to be happy around other people, so i just want to be with myself, cause it’s easier that way, i dont have to deal with anyone but myself, and i have learned how to talk to myself very well.
I am putting up some more photos of the journey so far, cause all this flood stuff is too linear.
