Imagine you are sitting at the top of the Connecticut River at the source lakes in New Hampshire. Wash away all your expectations. Listen with an open mind and an open heart.


I washed all my things in the river
Watched them float on down, down the river
Thaw out in the sun - snow and ice melt
From source to the sea - flow with freshet

Wash away with the spring
all the honey and the sting
Wash away wash me clean

Water runs free and clear
Wash away obstacles, fears
Wash away to the sea
