A single drop of water from melting snow began its life journey under a sunset on Eighty Acres. It soon reached the Red Cedar River...then the Chippewa River... and finally the Mississippi. At times the journey was calm and still in shallow waters. Other times the journey was dark, with deep water, raging rapids, fatigue and uncertainty. Each day the droplet moved forward towards its destiny, until the sky and water finally met and there was only peace.
