As a water-lover at heart, I could spend an entire lifetime making metaphors of the river to life. Jumping in a canoe to actually experience the sensation of “arriving” to the ocean (having flushed out from the lower Stikine after nearly two weeks on the water) was and is something that will forever remain beyond words. Instead of thinking too much about, just do as Amy Flexman does and jump at the opportunity to explore! It’s about "connecting outside." And in doing so, you find something so powerful, so beautiful, and so peaceful living within. As the famous quote states, “Individually we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”
