I sat there and forgot and forgot

And a river runs through it

I sat there and forgot and forgot, until what remained was the river that went by and I who watched. On the river the heat mirages danced with each other and then they danced through each other and then they joined hands and danced around each other. Eventually the watcher joined the river, and there was only one of us. I believe it was the river. – Norman Maclean

  1. wow, Mr Miyagi is such a literary guy! Always leaving quotes like this that leave people scratching their heads.

  2. Mr Miyagi – could it mean that the watcher jumped (and killed himself) into the river and hence became ‘one’ with it?

  4. maybe he pee into the river… hence became ‘one’ with the river. And ‘forgot’ he was in a public place and ‘forgot’ he was not suppose to pee into the river.
