I was traveling over the river yesterday and broke out in tears.
I miss the Chemung, I am still the River Hag in my heart.
However, my little River Dog, Ellie has been gone for what seems like forever. She's still in my heart everyday. I love my rescue Sarah, but she's too carsick to torture her with a trip to visit my river.
I am accepting this as a different phase in my life, but I will return to my visits someday.
Just not today.
