Dear River…

Writing 101, Day Fourteen: To Whom It May Concern

Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration. If you need a boost, Google the word and see what images appear, and then go from there.

Today’s twist: write the post in the form of a letter. You have a number of options: you can write a letter to the word or an image, or an open letter to the world inspired by the word.

Just received a book in the mail today – World Wonder Saved – How Mammoth Cave Became a National Park. Thought I’d take a look at it since several of my ancestors owned land that is now part of the national park. Opened it to page 29 and there’s a picture of the river boat on Green River which runs through the park.

Dear River,

How I long to float down stream on your gentle currents listening to the sounds of nature. Gentle breezes abound with the winds cooled from the cave. It has been way too long since I felt the gentle rock of the river boat.

Pictures are from 1978 or 1979 not sure which year, on the boat and walking down to the ferry launch.
