But why would you argue with me?
Aside from the fact that humans must
name and label, perhaps the rivers do have mystical names. We have to commune with them in order to find their hidden name.
I like your '____________ ' user symbol. I might ask but you might not reveal what it symbolizes. The first thing that came to me was 'flatlining' but of course that would be a longer line
I'm weird that way. The real beauty of it is that we
ourselves in ilp can imagine who we
are through your symbol, if that makes any sense.

“One of the pitfalls of childhood is that one doesn't have to understand something to feel it. By the time the mind is able to comprehend what has happened, the wounds of the heart are already too deep.”
“But in good time you'll see that sometimes what matters isn't what one gives but what one gives up.”
A room without books ..is like a body without a soul.”
“I couldn't help thinking that if I, by pure chance, had found a whole universe in a single unknown book, buried in that endless necropolis, tens of thousands more would remain unexplored, forgotten forever. I felt myself surrounded by millions of abandoned pages, by worlds and souls without an owner sinking in an ocean of darkness, while the world that throbbed outside the library seemed to be losing its memory, day after day, unknowingly, feeling all the wiser the more it forgot.”
