We experience the physical world through our senses, but our interior life is taken up with memories and the passage of time. Time seems to move at a chaotic pace as part of daily life. Media floods us with “information” that moves events forward in jerks and starts and we are often told what we remember or told that our memories are wrong. But in the woods and by the shore time flows evenly, at a pace that supports our contemplation. We are present and mindful of our surroundings: of nature and the relationship between the earth, the flow of water, and living things. The flow of water mimics the flow of time. Natural decay mimics our loss of memories over time.
