bachw-3385934_1280This poem came to me when I waded the river near my home to relieve stress. Since my kids did fishing for their 4-H projects this summer, I have spent a lot of time out on the river and always feel better when I get away from all the demands of life — homework, housework, deadlines, whatever. At the river, I can’t do more than be there. And I love that.

Where do you go when you need to relieve stress?
