    first entry

    I awoke near the bank of the river.  Not too near.  Listening in the gloomy dark of the early morning my senses were heightened to the slightest sound or movement.  The sound of slow moving water filled the background and the rustle of wind through the dead leaves and branches.  My nostrils filled with a [...]
