It has been said that in a contest between a river and a rock, the river always wins. Why? Because the river is willing to follow the natural call of gravity, going over, under, around or, eventually, through the rock, to its destiny which, as with all water, is to ultimately merge with the ocean.

I'm letting this fall be about surrender. About not being able to control everything and not having everything go the way I'd like it to. About learning whatever lesson my broken heel is supposed to be teaching me instead of powering through or ignoring it.
