From Little River Writings


“Then, we were told to run, without looking back, into the Cauldron spring. It was so dark I could not even see the water’s edge – I could barely see anything around me, not even my companions! And yet, I felt exhilarated, hyper-aware of my surroundings, the cacophony of the frog and toad voices around us reaching a fever pitch as I readied myself – and then I dashed into the water without a second thought. I dunked myself completely under, letting the cool, extremely refreshing water consume me. I willed all of it away – my worries, doubts, and fears – and I felt peaceful as I held myself under. Finally, I came up for air, and waded back to the solid ground. I left the water laughing uncontrollably, lighter and goofier and happier in mind and spirit. I looked around and saw the grinning faces of my friends, both old and new, lit by a now-roaring bonfire, and I felt healed.”
